01 January 2008
Washington (United States) -
SEGD (the Society for Environmental Graphic Design) has announced the publication of the SEGD Green Paper: Best Practices, Strategies, and Scenarios for Sustainability in Environmental Graphic Design.
Washington (United States) - SEGD (the Society for Environmental Graphic Design), an international non-profit educational foundation, has announced the publication of the SEGD Green Paper: Best Practices, Strategies, and Scenarios for Sustainability in Environmental Graphic Design.

The SEGD Green Paper is the result of a collaborative effort by the SEGD Green Committee, a group of SEGD members including designers, fabricators, and materials manufacturers. The committee began as a group of individuals working on their own, in areas such as leadership in other green organizations, development of green products, and development of green design practices in their own firms.

The SEGD Green Paper includes sections on:
- The Green Revolution
- Key Green Issues for SEGD Members
- Understanding Sustainable Rating Systems
- Strategies for Green EGD
- The Green Audit
- EGD Scenarios Using Green Practices
- Taking a Leadership Role
- Resources Guide

Designed to provide a strategic framework, resources, and inspiration for promoting sustainability in EGD, the SEGD Green Paper is the counterpart to SEGD's earlier publication, The ADA White Paper, and represents another benchmark in SEGD's continuum of providing educational resources to the EGD community.

The SEGD Green Paper was sponsored by ASI-Modulex with Nova Polymers, Dixie Graphics, and Accent Signage Systems.

Free to SEGD members. Non-members USD $40.
