- Building a Sustainable Design Community | Fast Company – "The Designers Accord is neither a governing body like the American Institute of Graphic Arts (the largest industry organization) nor a third-party certification standard like LEED.

- Carbon emissions from electricity generation, by country « lightbucket – Geek-tastic stats on electricity: "Table 1 below lists the 35 countries with the highest electrical energy generation in 2007, sorted in descending order of emissions per unit electrical energy generated. The table is based on data from CARMA (with units converted to metric)."
