The Trust for Sustainable Development
The Trust for Sustainable Development is an inter-disciplinary group of professionals based in Victoria, BC, Canada committed to envisioning, designing and building sustainable communities (towns and buildings). A small core staff works full-time at the Trust in research, education and project pre-development.
The founder of the Trust, David Butterfield has guided his TSD team through a cutting-edge process combining in-depth scientific, economic, social and financial analysis with extensive public and government consultation, making him one of the world's prominent experts in "sustainable community development" technology.
The Trust has planned, designed, and with development partners, financed and built several highly successful projects ranging from brownfield re-development to sustainable New Towns.
