Ronald Cohen, The Fight for Sustainability in Real Estate

As the global population continues to increase exponentially, societies around the world are consuming natural resources at unprecedented rates. We cut down forests, pollute rivers, and clear thousands of acres of arable land for farming each year. We are hungry; cities are crowded; and every country is doing whatever they can to make sure that they have the most amount of resources before everything runs out.

However, this mentality—at least in the United States—is only representative of our government. The general public has long been crying out for alternative forms of energy, stricter restrictions on deforestation, and business practices that reflect our growing concerns for the environment. For Eric Lee Siegel, the importance of building green has been a hallmark of his work within the real estate industry.
