Turning Green Into Gold Comes to Internet in Mid-December as Free Webinar

NEW YORK, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- North America's most acclaimed educational program on green buildings, Turning Green into Gold, will be presented on the internet for the first time on December 14th at 1 pm Eastern time. The program will be conducted as a 90 minute webinar. It will be moderated by B. Alan Whitson, President of the Corporate Realty, Design & Management Institute.

The December 14th webinar can be viewed for free. Funding for this free educational session has been provided by Owens Corning. The webinar will be free only on this date. Subsequent viewings of the archived webcast will require an educational processing fee. This webinar is being produced by Platinum Development Company, a full service webcasting company which serves the green building industry via TalkPoint technology.

This fact filled webinar gets right to the bottom line, answering the two basic questions on everybody's mind -- "Does Green Cost More?" and "Are Green Buildings Worth More Money?"

Economic insights have been compiled from three of the Institute's top rated educational programs on high performance buildings. These three popular programs were presented in 20 U.S. and Canadian cities during 2006:

* It's The Money: Separating Green Fact from Fiction * Renovate for ROI * Guidelines for a High Performance, Sustainable Workplace

This 90-minute webinar is the distillation of all the knowledge packed into these three seminar programs and the practical insights offered by 56 of North America's top practitioners of green design, construction and operations who served as panelists at the seminars.
