The SEGD Green Paper contains a Green Audit derived from a method developed for breaking down sustainable design components. Following is an excerpt from the Green Paper. "The purpose of the Green Audit, based on an audit by Naomi Pearson of Pentagram, is to articulate the green strategies employed and provide a consistent format for documenting green projects, processes, and materials for future reference. This sample audit includes a list of materials and methodologies that the SEGD Green Committee has identified as potential resources for green projects".
