Video: Patagonia's LEED Gold Distribution Center

[Run time: 5:43 min.]  This is a pretty good video.  If you’re in business and in a position to make decisions about facilities, etc., this is a good idea generator.  In fact, that’s what Jetson Green is all about: generating ideas for application in a new setting.  Here’s Patagonia‘s Mission Statement: "Build the best product, do no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis."  This is a good company, working to make a difference in business.  The video covers the following: (1) managing storm-water runoff, (2) landscape and exterior design, (3) water and energy efficiency, (4) construction materials, and (5) green housekeeping, alternative transportation, and recycling.  Note also that Patagonia supports 1% for the Planet.

3/5/2007 – Update: Just noticed a new press release today stating that Patagonia received the LEED Gold level certification, an even more prestigious accomplishment than the Silver.
