“Future Proof My Building” is a community of corporations, service providers, builders and citizens that want to have a role in creating a sustainable future. We are creating a venue that will allow people to shape our world through information, Future Proof™ infrastructure, a network of sustainable building experts, and most importantly informed consumers.
In our modern age marketing rules our imaginations, but we want to make science and reason the tools for decision making.
We believe in radical transparency and seek to make decision making easier for you by providing you with more than just the hype.
Why Future Proof My Building?
The world is changing faster than at any time in history, much faster than any human can comprehend. This growth can lead to greater prosperity as we adapt to our changing world.
Practical, proven knowledge and new technologies are coming online that have the potential to free us from our societal dependence on unsustainable forms of energy and growth. People have a great desire to know about these opportunities, find them easily, and be able to implement without deterrents. This is what we aim to provide.
What is Future Proof My Building?
We aim to create a hub on the Internet that will empower citizens to both learn about and connect with the products, service providers, money and tools that are required in order to individually and collectively create a more sustainable world. Think of a collaborative community for construction projects, where information, forward thinking and cooperation are the keys to productive growth.
How to participate with Future Proof My Building?
Companies promoting a product or offering a service relating to green building or energy efficiency have the opportunity to register with the service for a low cost fee (currently free). Providers and products will be listed in a local directory that is easily accessed by citizens. Rebate programs, grant providers, participating lending institutions and citizen groups will be able to post on the service in order to communicate the availability of funds and opportunities for sustainable projects. As the service grows, connections will be created and relayed to community members to make the process of implementing sustainability even easier.
By facilitating the necessary education and providing access to the resources needed to take action in one place, the roadblocks and headaches associated with meaningful progress disolve.
