We hope they continue to develop their offset plan in full at a later date.”
According to John Petersen, director of operations at Lucid, “our business is committed to creating a product that informs building occupants and users of the continuous flows of energy and cycles of matter taking place around them. Our goal is to empower people to conserve resources, appreciate the value of renewable energy and local material cycling and to be better environmental stewards of our planet. We believe that it is crucial for us to manage our company in a way that is consistent with the goals of our products.”
