HuntGreen LLC is involved in projects nationally and internationally. A few of our previous projects include:
The creation of a new vision for transportation in the United States as called for in a new White Paper by Geoff Wardle and David Muyres. The paper is entitled Futurama 2.0: Mobilizing America’s Transportation Revolution, and was released at the end of August, 2009. For more information, and a copy of the paper, please go to www.ongoingtransportation.com.
Imagine a World
Imagine a World is a collaboration led by Llewellyn Wells — previously the VP of Communications at the Rocky Mountain Institute and prior to that, a producer of the award wining West Wing TV series — to envision a positive and sustainable future.
Green Hotels in Argentina
HuntGreen was part of a team that is worked on the design and planning for seven green 5-star hotels in Argentina, including the green strategy, design and recommendations for the local and national government.
Agriculture, Deforestation, and Climate Change
HuntGreen worked with the National Wildlife Federation on their Agriculture, Deforestation and Climate Change project to develop new strategies to reduce deforestation and the associated green house gas emissions and biodiversity loss. The team is engaging in dialogue and collaborative research with leaders in the major commodities industries and the finance world. The aim of the project is to identify potential avenues for reducing the “climate change footprint” of key agricultural commodities markets. The team formulated and tested ideas around how avoided deforestation efforts (pre/post-REDD) might be complemented by financial instruments. The idea being that it may take a bit more than currently proposed policy alternatives to effect behavioral change.
While the ability of the Internet to quickly synthesize spatial data (e.g. Google Earth) and coordinate user-added content (e.g. Wikipedia) has been well demonstrated, the potential power and speed of these tools has yet to be fully harnessed for environmental purposes. Earth–Audit functions as an engine that inputs freely available datasets from a variety of partners, uses scientific algorithms to derive useful content from these data, and allows users to interact with the content via Web 2.0 technology. Importantly, Earth Audit’s content continually updates, as new and better data becomes available. There is a critical need for Earth Audit and similar tools to map land cover, forests, biodiversity, carbon, and other critical assets to enable users to quickly track changes in environmental resources over time to facilitate emerging carbon and other markets and policy compliance.
