Our Philosophy

GREENTHINC is a verb, a call to action. To think and to act. GREEN is the couching of all things natural. The systems of nature, i.e. cleaning of water, cleaning of air, production of energy, cycle of life. THINC, To act on behalf of nature as part of nature, not separate from it. How does a building and its site do this? That is our journey.
