“Pick up Paul Hawken’s new book, ‘Drawdown,’ and you’ll find a long list of innovations with the potential to address climate change, at the same time improving our overall quality of life,” says Green Builder Editor-in-Chief Matt Power. “It’s no coincidence that many of these ideas intersect with products and projects already being explored by forward-thinking manufacturers. Take the Bosch Group, for example. The company’s vision for the future includes net-zero housing, reducing resource consumption, finding new forms of transportation, and making smart technology work hard to improve our lives.”
