    2003 Green Giants

    For the first time in the 26 years that we've been tabulating our list of Interior Design Giants, we surveyed participating firms' thoughts about sustainable design. And responses from the top 100 Giants, 2003, indicate that sustainable design is here to stay. Virtually all Giants are involved in sustainable design or think it's important to specify environmentally minded products. The following tables and charts say it all.

    These Giants say that it's "extremely" or "very" important to their designers or clients to use environmentally minded products:
