Michael Torres, President Of GreenWorld Restoration, Talks Green At CLEEN

Austin Energy Green Building Speaking Engagement promotes sustainability and green building

PR Newswire

AUSTIN, Texas, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — “You don’t have to lose your green to go green,” that’s the trademarked catch phrase of GreenWorld Restoration.  On July 18, 2013Michael Torres, president of GreenWorld Restoration, shared the company’s vision of providing stronger, more resilient, affordable, energy efficient and sustainable housing options in response to the overwhelming need for rapid recovery disaster response housing.  As a guest speaker at the Clean Energy Entrepreneurs Network (CLEEN) Green Building event, Torres shed light on the company’s research and development activities towards implementing a complete sustainable development model that provides safe, resilient housing and addresses the need for a healthy infrastructure and socio-economic balance.

AUSTIN – PIONEERING THE GREEN MOVEMENT

Austin, as one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, created the first green building program in efforts to minimize the city’s environmental impact.  Austin Energy Green Building, inaugurated in 1990, soon became the nation’s most successful sustainable development program.  GreenWorld Restoration is proud to be a part of this pioneer movement to raise awareness for sustainable development initiatives and environmentally friendly rapid recovery programs.

CLEEN SPEAKER ENGAGEMENT

CLEEN, the acronym meaning Clean Energy Entrepreneurs Network, pre-dates the LEED program promoting initiatives for more environmentally friendly sustainable building practices.  For the last event of the summer, Austin Energy Green Building hosted a forum to discuss green building and smart growth in Austin.  Several leaders in sustainable development and green building were invited to speak and express their ideas on implementing programs to promote environmental balance and sustainability. Michael Torres, president of GreenWorld Restoration, addressed the attendees on the topic of sustainable building and building for resiliency.

As Torres explained, GreenWorld has spent the last eight years researching the effects of natural disasters and deforestation on communities and developing solutions to restore hope and promote sustainability.  Although GreenWorld’s research has been mainly focused on disaster recovery sustainable housing development, one of the central objectives continues to be raising awareness to the possibility of using cleaner, more environmentally sound materials to build better, stronger and more energy efficient homes.

AUSTIN, TexasJune 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Greenworld Restoration, LLC is announcing the release of a premium workforce housing solution that lowers front-end costs, shortens construction times, lowers operating costs, and increases the residual value of the purchased or leased asset.  Upon completion of an Energy project, the materials from each workforce housing unit can be converted and used to construct permanent single family housing meeting IRC and IBC building codes.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130613/DA31810LOGO)

“Our patented approach to converting the materials form temporary structures into permanent structures makes a significant contribution to the local community by providing the community with permanent infrastructure, an increased tax base and affordable housing solutions for the elderly, veterans or groups within the community who are in need,” says Michael Torres, Founder and CEO, GreenWorld Restoration.  “Our approach also provides a strong Corporate Social Responsibility platform for the Energy Company doing work in the local community as they are now able to create value out of temporary housing that would traditionally be destined for the landfill.”

GreenWorld’s sustainable construction materials have not only been designed with convertibility in mind but also with the need to reduce the risk of damage as a result of an increase in natural disasters.   Whether a customer chooses to build a structure using the Company’s Metal-Stick Frame Interlocking Wall Structure or its Lightweight Insulated Concrete Panels, GreenWorld’s products offer a 2-3X improvement in structural security over traditional construction materials and methods.  “Our homes, schools, churches, and places of business can be made more resilient better able to withstand earthquakes, fires, tornados or hurricanes; and by using fewer trees and substituting materials that have a longer life, we are doing better for our planet,” says Michael Torres.

THE ART OF GIVING

by Alexandra Landeros

Michael Torres

The people in the Austin Hispanic community have a significant history of creating positive change, whether it’s as advocates for social causes, as political activists, as educational reformers, as artists and musicians, as successful business owners or as community leaders.

In 2011, the Austin History Center featured an exhibit of Mexican American trailblazers who have been paving the way since the early 1900s for younger Latinos.

Yet up until recently, we have not heard much about Latinos in philanthropy, particularly here in Austin.  But there is a rising group of philanthropic leaders, such as Michael Torres with Worldwide Maniac Foundation, who are giving in new and innovative ways.

Michael Torres is equal parts creative genius and skilled entrepreneur. Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, he was asked to support the United States, British and Australian governments in designing system architectures, and he later became an adviser to Interpol on International Data Sharing. He grew his prior company CSIdentity to profitability within three years. Currently, he is president and CEO of GreenWorld Restoration, building sustainable housing and communities in areas that have been stricken by disaster.

For Torres, the journey to philanthropy was a spiritual transformation. “I began going inward to understand more about myself and what my purpose was.” As he reflected on his experience in corporate management and as an entrepreneur, it became apparent that a lot of the skills he’d developed were preparing him to do something bigger. “Once I heard what that was,” he says, “I aggressively went after it.” He discovered that there was something more important beyond obtaining balance with one’s self – that is, obtaining balance with one’s self, connected to a greater social and environmental level balance.

Since his revelation in 2005, Torres began focusing on a new way of building. Beyond constructing homes, GreenWorld Restoration designs and develops sustainable communities. Through this approach, they are able to help create a community that is in balance with the land ecologically, as well as with the people economically. It’s through this sustainable model, Torres says, that they are able to “lift the land and the people up.”

Torres began his social entrepreneurial focus on Haiti because of its extreme poverty, devastating circumstances and heartfelt people.  Today, three years after the 2010 earthquake, approximately 1/2  million people are still living in tents or temporary shelters, looking for a better way to live but with little hope in sight.  “If we as humanity are not successful in Haiti , what bigger challenge must we face in order to understand,” he says.

After the devastating Central Texas fires of summer 2011, Torres is also preparing to turn his attention to Bastrop, “We are at a point in time where we have an opportunity to examine the ways in which we rebuild so that we reduce the risk of having to rebuild again ,” he explains. “It’s ok for us to reexamine what we do and how we do it; there is a great deal of opportunity and profits that can come from this re-examination.

Right now, Torres is not so focused on changing the lives of mainstream Americans just yet.  A sustainable way of living hasn’t yet reached a point of entering Geoffrey A. Moore’s early majority segment of the consumer adoption curve. Torres’ approach is to focus on sustainable solutions for Governments and Large Corporations but be on the look-out, in time consumer solutions will be coming.

GreenWorld Restoration’s construction materials and sustainable homes are built with the capability for add-ons for solar energy, waterless septic system and passive cooling, and they are designed to withstand earthquakes and hurricanes.

But in the same way that building solutions need to be environmentally and socially sustainable, philanthropy also has an opportunity to be more sustainable. “By the combining the for profit engine of a socially conscious corporation with the “teach a man to fish” engine of a foundation, all things are possible,” says Torres.

In addition to giving new homeowners the tools and resources they need to thrive, Torres also makes sure that he has the financial resources he needs to continue doing what he does. GreenWorld Restoration allocates up to 30 percent of its profits to “Pay-it-Back” to the communities they serve and “Pay-it-Forward” to communities affected by natural disasters that they have yet to serve.

GreenWorld Restoration Sustainable Housing Platform(TM) for Rebuilding After Hurricane Sandy

AUSTIN, TX–(Marketwire – Nov 27, 2012) – With the unfortunate and catastrophic events of Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, tsunami in Japan and other natural disasters across the world, many families have been left without homes, electricity and clean water. GreenWorld Restoration believes that it is time to deeply reconsider how we as a world rebuild our homes and infrastructure.

According to Michael Torres, President and CEO of GreenWorld Restoration, “We have an opportunity to shift the paradigm. We have an opportunity to rebuild in ways that are in balance with the planet using materials designed to better withstand the elements. If we want to achieve different results then we must reconsider our actions, processes and approach. A house made of straw, a house made of sticks, a house made of bricks or a house made of more sustainable materials better designed to withstand the elements.”

GreenWorld Restoration’s Sustainable Housing Platform™ utilizes a traditional U.S. stick frame structure with recycled metal instead of wood, supported by exterior and interior structural walls incorporating special materials in order to make the homes more resistant to hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, fire, heat, mold and termites. As a result, the homes are safer and more energy efficient, saving up to 40% on utility bills.

In addition, GreenWorld will soon be releasing another version of its Sustainable Housing Platform, incorporating lightweight concrete into structural walls using less than 10% of the energy typically used to make concrete. This product enhancement has been designed to further enhance a home’s ability to resist the elements.
