TIA President Says Green Buildings Shouldn’t Be a Goal
Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) president Grant Seiffert recently said the quest for green buildings is not a lofty enough goal for those involved in the development of technologies to serve current and future generations. “The goal shouldn’t be green buildings, it should be a sustainable economy where services are delivered to rural poor as easily as they are to urban rich,” Seiffert said. “Broadband and the communications services TIA members enable make the world more productive, efficient and connected.”
That quote came as part of the TIA’s announcement that it has joined the Sustainable Technology Environments Program (STEP).
I like the quote “where services are delivered to rural poor as easily as they are to urban rich”. Perhaps he’d care to address the lack of true high speed internet access (with no data caps) at affordable prices throughout the US.
While the internet and wireless service providers in this country continue to choke our access to the internet, other countries are forging ahead.
