From the press release: "The documentary touched on hot topics associated with sustainability. Dockside Green's multi-use building development was envisioned using 'the triple bottom line' as a primary principle. This principle champions the idea that society, ecology and economy must be given equal weight when considering any development strategy. Dockside most notably treats its own sewage, creates power from wind turbines, and offers affordable housing."
