GRIaccomplishes this vision by developing, continuallyimproving, and building capacity around the use ofits Sustainability Reporting Framework.</p></li><li><p> SustainabilityCategorizing Sustainability Indicators Categories are based on:</p><p>TBL</p><p>Relationship between the daily practices and sustainability</p><p>Strength of this relationship</p><p>Ex: In the UN CSD, proportion of urban population living in slums addresses this relationship directly through poverty, whereas this relationship is also addressed indirectly through health, governance or land.</p><p>Characteristics of the building industry</p></li><li><p>TRENDS &amp; CHALLENGES</p><p>CHANGING BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT</p></li><li><p>Environmental ConcernsWill CLEAN air &amp; water continue to be available ?Will food be from polluted source ?Will flora &amp; fauna continue to exist ?Will there be more flooding ?Will there be more new diseases ?Will the temperature of the environment be rising ? </p></li><li><p>How are WE positioned in this Storm ?</p></li><li><p>Can the Human Race do Something ?</p></li><li><p> YES ! </p><p>THEY CAN</p></li><li><p>Green the Supply Chain</p><p>ONE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS</p><p>TO GO FOR GREEN Green Building: How?</p></li><li><p>BackgroundThe drive to go green is undoubtedly welcome as the problems of water shortage, energy crisis and climate change are seemingly here to stay. Also the green concept has to be developed for local context so that they can be still be applied within the local and financial needs.</p></li><li><p> Green Building Green buildings have less negative impact on the environment than standard buildings. Their construction minimizes on-site grading, saves natural resources by using alternative building materials, and recycling construction waste rather than sending truck after truck to landfills. </p></li><li><p>WORLD ACCEPTABLE STANDARDSLEED CERTIFICATION - USABREEAM CERTIFICATION- UK CASBEE CERTIFICATION- JAPAN GREEN GLOBE -USAGREEN STAR - AUSTRALIAGREEN RATING SYSTEM- SRI LANKA</p></li><li><p>Current green building certification systemsLEEDGreen GlobesCalifornia Green Building CodeCASBEE (Japan)Green StarBREEAM U.K.BREEAM Europe &amp; InternationalDGNBLEED, BREEAM Gulf</p></li><li><p> Requirements for Green Building CertificationDesigning According to the Triple Bottom Line:</p><p>economic performance, contribution to employment, protection of biodiversity, labor processes, security, public health, access to energy, access to clean water, educationcultural preservation</p></li><li><p> Assessing SsustainabilityTypes of AssessmentThree common methods of assessment :End-user impact assessmentLifecycle assessmentLifestyle assessment </p></li><li><p>End-user impactCalculation of negative externalities created by the direct actions of the end usersExternalities (carbon footprint, hazardous gas emissions, waste production, etc.) are calculated by looking at the consumption processes of goods and services.</p></li><li><p>Lifecycle</p><p>Introduced during the UN Earth Summit in Rio in 1992Production, transportation and consumption process of products and servicesEx: Evaluating buildings CO2 emission requires calculation of CO2 emission that has been created throughout the excavation, production and transportation of the building materials, as well as the CO2 produced by direct use of energy in the building. </p></li><li><p>Future lifestyle: </p><p>Preserving todays consumption oriented, individualistic vision</p><p>Curbing the externalities of peoples unlimited desires by technological advances </p></li><li><p>What Can You Do??TomorrowTodayExternalInternalScience and TechnologyLife scienceNanotechnologyRenewable energyBiofuelsICTClean Tech Start-Ups$4 billion in VC in 06Energy conservationEnvironmental managementFacility managementOperations managementConsultingToxic use reductionWaste reductionEmission reductionMicrofinanceSocial venturingRural developmentNGOsGrameen FoundationCAREDevelopment banksCorporate BOP initiativesGreen building Sustainable designNew product developmentRemanufacturingRecyclingNegotiationStakeholder Dialogue</p></li><li><p>The Sustainable Value PortfolioTomorrowTodayExternalInternal</p></li><li><p>Ten major areas in GreenSolid Waste Reduction Recycle or Reuse Materials Reduced Office Waste Purchase Used or Recycled Content Energy Savings Water Conservation Pollution Prevention Chemical Reduction Potential Pollutants Reduce Vehicle Emissions Environmentally Friendly Purchasing </p></li><li><p>GREEN CERTIFICATIONYou cannot talk about Green unless you love your people and your country</p></li><li><p>SLSI RoleSLSI implements number of certification schemes to facilitate the Greening of Supply Chain. </p></li><li><p>ISO 14000 seriesISO 14001ISO 14004 ISO 19011EMS RequirementsEMS Guidelines and support techniquesGuidance on auditing of EMS &amp; QMS</p></li><li><p>ISO 14000 seriesISO 14067ISO DIS 14046ISO 19011Carbon foot printWater Foot PrintGuidance on auditing of EMS &amp; QMS</p></li><li><p>ISO 50000 seriesISO 50001ISO 19011Energy Management RequirementsGuidance on auditing of EMS &amp; QMS</p></li><li><p>Energy Labelling SchemeSLS 1225Energy Efficiency Labelling For CFLsStar rating certification Scheme</p></li><li><p>Thank you!</p><p>This landmark report developed by AirAdvice Inc. based on the analysis of 49,130 indoor air quality tests conducted in homes across North America, shows that people in 9 out of 10 American homes are breathing unhealthy indoor air. Overall, 96.7% of all homes tested had at least one of six indoor air quality (IAQ) problems analyzed in the AirAdvice study -- particle allergens, chemical pollutants, carbon dioxide, temperature, humidity, and carbon monoxide.

The findings are based on 49,130 individual IAQ tests conducted during a 34-month period (3/1/2004 12/31/2006). Each of these 49,130 tests represents, on average, 4,320 unique air samples (based on the typical test scenario of one air sample collected per minute during a three-day period). With each unique air sample per minute analyzed for six individual environmental issues, collectively these findings comprise nearly 1.3 billion IAQ data points which is the largest Indoor Air Quality database in the world.</p><p>http://oikos.com/library/breathingwalls/index.html http://www.jericsmith.com/images/gg17.jpg - imageThis landmark report developed by AirAdvice Inc. based on the analysis of 49,130 indoor air quality tests conducted in homes across North America, shows that people in 9 out of 10 American homes are breathing unhealthy indoor air.

The IPCCs best estimates range from a few inches to a few feet by 2100. If the rise is 2 feet, the US could lose 10,000 square miles, If they rise three, they will inundate Miami and most of coastal Florida. Sea-level rise also increases coastal erosion and the loss of coastal wetlands, and saltwater spoils freshwater drinking supplies. Coastal populations become even more vulnerable to storm surge and flooding. Considering that half of the worlds population lives near coasts, sea-level rise is a serious concern.</p><p>The big unknown in all this is how much the planets ice sheets will melt. *This landmark report developed by AirAdvice Inc. based on the analysis of 49,130 indoor air quality tests conducted in homes across North America, shows that people in 9 out of 10 American homes are breathing unhealthy indoor air.
