Terrapin is thrilled to have the support of Rick Fedrizzi and the USGBC on their 2012 publication of The Economics of Biophilia.

“The work that Terrapin Bright Green has done to make the business case for biophilia is one of the most important pieces of work of this decade. Access to nature and natural elements in our environment are more than nice-to-haves; they are vital to our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Terrapin has given us solid evidence that economic investments in biophilic design reap huge returns in health and productivity. This research is a huge new tool in our arsenal of market transformation and we should make sure every design practitioner on the planet has access to it.”
