We at re-habitat are interested in a holistic approach to sustainability. We love the design aspect of sustainability in our built environments, but we are avid learners of how other industries are incorporating sustainability into their work. Last year we had the opportunity to moderate a sustainability panel for SUN, the Presentation Sponsor (if you are in Central New York and are unaware of this group read more here) of the sustainability event hosted by WCNY and Premier Events, a division of WCNY. On the panel was President of SUNY Morrisville, Dr. David Rogers; Principle of local engineering firm Critical Path Engineering, Sara Martin; Amy Farrell of UBS Asset Management, the Organization’s LEED on Socially Responsible Investing; and recycling specialist, Dale Cocca, of Onondaga County Resource Recovery. While each panelist’s background was diverse and seemingly disconnected at first glance, the conversation proved commonalities in creating adaptive cultures, the excited anticipation of more millennials in the workforce, and creating efficiencies for sustainability in our workplaces and products. It was an uplifting discussion of innovation across multiple industries where each question created a surprising and educational response. Watch the panel discussion here.
