East Timor/Carbon trading

TEA is helping establish Carbon Trading in East Timor as a way of assisting the economy contribute to greenhouse gas reduction, by assisting to alleviate soil erosion, loss of topsoil and pollution of waterways.

The built landcape is one of the main offenders in relation to environmental degradation. TEA have seen our position as architects as a way of implementing the objectives of sustainability into the buildings we design. All buildings where possible use natural materials, water storage, solar panels for hot water and electricity, water recycling, and other power saving devices. Our buildings are designed in such a way that natural light and environmental features are incorporated throughout the building.
