Green Audit


The sustainable checklist is a tool developed to help Two Twelve Associates assess the Life Cycle, or potential environmental impact, of what we are creating. Using the checklists, a wide range of considerations and options can be assessed. A fellow 212 Green Team member developed a similar checklist for the Print Design Team.
