We are in a critical transition from laws to ethics that will define the third phase of the environmental movement, where the architect is the leader of environmental integration.

What does an integrated sustainable design strategy really mean? Gensler's design impact spans from an individual's desk to workplaces and city buildings. The expansion of their practice globally highlights the theories and practices they export, and the impact they can have on communities worldwide.

Among the topics to be examined are: exploring the intersection of sustainable design and virtual design, setting standards for global real estate organizations, guiding learning within the firm and with clients, creating tools for sustainable design at every level,and reducing the firm's carbon footprint. Each of these strategies has implications across multiple offices around the world. Learn how these strategies may impact your own firm, as we move forward together in a time of urgent change.
