The Green Star rating system was created to: * Define green building by establishing a common language and standard of measurement; * Promote integrated, whole-building design; * Identify building life-cycle impacts; * Raise awareness of green building benefit; * Recognize and reward environmental leadership; * Transform the built environment to reduce the environmental impact of development. 1.2 How does it apply to multi residential project?

Busi 604 Db5 - Raw Materials

...KEY TERM AND WHY I AM INTERESTED IN IT While studying Russia for the GBCA, it has become increasingly obvious that everyone generally feels that Russia’s main (and some may say only) contribution to global trade is in raw materials (Lally, 2012). I am curious to learn more about raw materials and what makes Russia such a heavy player in this arena. EXPLANATION OF THE KEY TERM Raw materials are “inventory items that are used in the manufacturer’s conversion process to produce components, subassemblies, or finished products” (Satterlee, 2009). These inventory items are “unfinished goods” such as “a steelmaker uses iron ore and other metals in producing steel” (Raw material, 2006). When determining whether to conduct business in a particular region, the availability and relative proximity to raw materials should be a determining factor in the decision making process. While it can be beneficial for emerging businesses when the cost of raw materials is low in a particular region, it can become financially problematic when the vast majority of a nation’s economic system is wrapped up in the production and cost of raw materials. MAJOR ARTICLE SUMMARY This article is a general overview of the Russian economy as of December 2008 that reflects on the causes for a “slowdown” the preceding October. Even though there was a “slowdown” in the economy, growth was still taking place as evidenced in the GDP. For October of that year, GDP growth was 5.9% relative to the 7.7% seen in...

...European Central Bank in my previous work and current work experiences. I was previously employed with the Federal Reserve Bank, which is the main decision maker for all U.S. currency, and monetary policies. In my current position, the company I work for is headquarter overseas, and has offices located in countries that are members of the European Central Bank. I think researching the European Central Bank, will be very useful to have a more thorough understanding of currency and business practices in within the European Union. In addition, gaining the knowledge of what requirements are needed to join the European Central Bank, and the monetary policies these countries must abide by in order to maintain membership will be insightful towards my GBCA paper, since my country is member of the European Central Bank and European Union. EXPLANATION OF EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK The European Central Bank is the central bank for nineteen European Union members. The central bank is responsible for all monetary policies within the European Union, and sets interest rates across the nineteen participating members. Any nation that chooses to join the European Union much adopt the Euro as their currency except for the member states which have been exempted under the Maastricht Treaty (Great Britain & Denmark). Prior to membership into the Euro Zone, European Union member countries must adhere to and satisfy very strict economic convergence criteria. Most member countries much have......
