  • Who We Are

  • What We do

We have developed an extraordinary expertise in global warming and energy management issues in recent years. Our training came by way of our clients
– who introduced us to some of the world’s leading climate change researchers
– and from decades of work with utility companies on energy efficiency initiatives for homeowners, and commercial and industrial companies.

With this growing expertise, we have developed a number of successful programs to help others move forward.

Company Carbon and Ecological Footprint:

The Climate Registry: In 2007 Bowman Design Group joined this program which provides tools for measuring and verifying carbon emissions. Our commitment to this program will help us measure our progress in coming years. We urge other companies to sign up as well at climateregistry.org.
Energy Improvements: We are working with our utility companies and contractors to reduce energy use in our facility by improving natural light and ventilation, installing a tankless hot water system, replacing all lighting with fluorescent lights, shading windows and more.

In 2007 we initiated a work-at-home program by providing computers and cell phones to staff in order to minimize long commutes. Employees opt to work at home or in the office based on the demands of each project.

Green Exhibiting
We are working with our fabrication suppliers to utilize sustainable forest products certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, minimize transportation and extend the lifecycle of exhibit properties.

Education Programs

Industry Programs: Tom Bowman frequently speaks about climate change, energy management and sustainable practices to industry associations and professional conferences, such as Exhibitor, the Trade Show Exhibitors Association, Exhibit Designers and Producers Association and the American Public Health Association.
