This webcast will focus on how our professional ethics are no longer black and white, they are shades of green. Not only do professionals have an obligation to design for the health, welfare, and safety of people they represent; they also have an obligation to safeguard the environment. This course will discuss why professionals have a green ethical obligation to promote excellence of design and endeavor to conserve and preserve the integrity and heritage of the natural and built environment. We will focus on how professional societies and registration boards are holding professionals accountable for sustainable design and planning practices and to consider the environment in everything they do.
