Green Paths Incorporated

The goal behind Green Paths Incorporated is to create a clearing house for useful information that fosters the necessary transition to a sustainable society. For many years, the doubters have protested that nobody knows what sustainable development is, and even if they do, nobody knows how to do sustainable development. The facts, on the other hand, clearly demonstrate that sustainable development is very straightforward, fairly easily understood, and a growing body of researchers, practitioners, and corporations are already well down the path to sustainable development.

For most of us, the path to sustainability will probably be an incremental transition from the unsustainable to the sustainable. For the fortunate group or community building a new organization or starting a new enterprise, achieving sustainability can be relatively straightforward because there is less to undo before sustainable elements are put in place. For the rest of the world, we need to progressively and thoughtfully move along the path toward sustainability -- hence the name of this web site, Green Paths Incorporated.
