Minnesota Sustainable Design Guide

The Minnesota Sustainable Design Guide is a design tool that can be used to set sustainable design priorities and goals; develop appropriate sustainable design strategies for a particular project; and to determine performance measures to guide the design and decision-making process. It can also be used as a management tool to organize and structure environmental concerns during design, construction, and operations phases. (www.msdg.umn.edu)
