Windmill Development Group will work with the architectural team of Diamond Schmitt Architects and DTAH to create a One Planet Living community in downtown Guelph, Ontario. One Planet Living is a planning framework based on the principles of sustain-able food and water, net-zero carbon energy production, zero waste, equality and economy. [1]

One Planet Living is a planning and sustainability framework by Bioregional, a company that works with partners to create better places for people to live, work and do business, it states. It’s predicated on building communities where people can live “happy and healthy lives within the limits of the planet, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness and using their fair share of the earth’s resources,” states the Bioregional website.
