"Greenthink is a gift to all of us andoffers a solid platform for moving forward with positive, sustainableresults. The idea that environmentalists and business should--and must--worktogether to assure optimum solutions is key to future success for all parties.A 'win-win,' Rick points out clearly, as we all share commonenemies: waste, inefficiency, pollution, climate change, resourcescarcity, and environmental degradation. To address these issues, embrace Greenthink."
--ArtGensler, Founder, Gensler
 
"Oneof the most significant arguments for sustainability I have ever come across.Rick's approach to this topic is different from any work to date, demonstratingthe power of profitability and the simple case for why adopting 'green'principles is no longer just a choice, but a necessary edge to survivecompetitively in business."
--PaulScialla, Founder and Chairman, DELOS Living

Book Description

A former Fortune 50 manufacturing executive, Rick Fedrizzi played an instrumental role in creating the most important and far-reaching sustainability movement of our time: the green building movement. Today, Fedrizzi’s work and ideas are transforming the real estate industry, one of the largest sectors of the global economy, and one of the largest contributors to climate change.

As a cofounder of the U.S. Green Building Council, Fedrizzi oversaw the creation of LEED—Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design—which has certified more than fourteen billion square feet of sustainable real estate worldwide. According to Paul Hawken, a legendary environmentalist, “USGBC may have had a greater impact than any other single organization in the world on materials saved, toxins eliminated, greenhouse gases avoided, and human health enhanced.”

But that’s only half the story: the green building industry has also sparked billions of dollars of economic impact and created millions of jobs. This stunning revelation—that sustainability is profitable—is at the heart of Fedrizzi’s call to action. Fedrizzi turns conventional wisdom on its head by showing how profit can save the planet, and how sustainability is the biggest business opportunity of the twenty-first century.

A must-read for anyone who cares about the future of our environment, or the future of our economy. Because, in Fedrizzi’s words, “they will share the same fate.”
