    Matthew Rochte, LEED AP, Executive Director and Founder of the Milwaukee Sustainability Roundtablesm.

    Matthew has been working in sustainability/CSR and smart business since 1994. Matthew believes sustainability and CSR are fundamentally about smart business and innovation, and that they are most effective when they create value through cost reductions, strategic advantage, engagement, and increased sales. In the 90s, Matthew successfully ran and sold a triple-bottom-line (economic/social/environmental) manufacturing firm in Milwaukee. Since then, he has been on a mission to guide smart business leaders through CSR and sustainability. He works with business leaders to navigate the complexities of sustainability, to develop a plan, and to communicate and engage effectively both internally and externally. He has worked with large multinationals including McDonald’s Corporation to small manufacturing firms to international non-profits and NGOs. Learn more:

    Summary:  Recent research has found that current work environments are fulfilling the needs for collaboration and communication, but are doing a poor job of providing an acoustical environment free from distractions and conducive for productivity and speech privacy. Participants will leave with an understanding of how to identify interior design factors that will signal the need for sound masking and approaches to address the issues.

    Summary:  The Integrative Design Process is different from the conventional, or linear, design process. A linear process approaches each problem directly and separately, while an integrated process approaches each problem from the varied viewpoints of multiple participants and the issues they represent. LEED Fellow John Boecker describes what the IP credit means, how to take advantage of its opportunities, and engage in a process yielding better building performance than conventional means.
