We develop the future
We are proud members
of several committees to advance the science of quantified, harmonized,
objective environmental performance. We actively help ASTM and USGBC to
forward their ambitions and goals.
Our commitment to sustainability shows up in how we work. An example is
that we use on-site solar panels that produces more than we use and
feeds electricity back into the grid. We only buy energy star rated
equipment and have used less than 500 prints and copies per year. We are
almost fully digital. We offset all business
travel with investments in wind power. We are more than climate neutral,
we are climate positive.
We are proud to be able to share that we received
platinum recognition from the Austin Green Business Leadership Program.

without having to demolish any of the existing building envelop. The EPD
has been verified and is ready for publication.
