With non-residential buildings in the US consuming upwards of 40% of the nation's energy including over 71% of all electricity; producing 38% of atmospheric emissions;

Taking up to 40% of the municipal solid waste stream; using 88% of potable water, and exploiting significant amounts of land, alternative ways of doing business must be realized if we are to maintain our eco-balance.
