Gallery: Top Green Products Found at Greenbuild 2011 in Toronto

 
I spoke with Emma Stewart, Senior Manager of Sustainability at Autodesk to learn about how their designing and planning software is enabling the green building industry. Because Autodesk has solutions for everything from product design, to insutrial machinery engineering, building planning, and even urban planning, Emma said that it is like having all of the "ingredients" to design a sustainable city. They are able to offer designers all the product and materials information they need to make greener choice by leveraging strong partnerships with database providers. For example, their SEEK program uses the Granta database of LCA information, and gives free access to materials data. SEEK connects with Autodesk's other architectural design software to allow for selection of products based on your personal green values. Check out this video to see it in action. +Greenbuild 2011
