About SES Consulting

SES strives to create a new kind of company that inspires others by creating amazing green jobs that employees love while empowering their growing team to help other organizations become more energy efficient.

SES specializes in optimizing existing buildings using automation (direct digital controls) and leading edge efficient technologies and provides a full suite of energy efficiency services including:

  • Energy Auditing
  • Building Optimization / Re-commissioning
  • DDC Design and Optimization
  • Project Management
  • Monitoring and Verification
  • Engagement, Education and Social Marketing for Occupants
  • Coaching and Training for Operations Staff
  • Green Building Certification (LEED)

In addition to helping their clients reduce their energy footprint, SES continually seeks ways to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. Each year they donate 10% of their profits to charities whose missions are aligned with sustainability, they purchase 100% of their annual electricity usage from EcoLogo-certified green generation facilities through bullfrog power, and they have a number of sustainable office initiatives including paper-free filing systems, and incentivized sustainable transportation options for staff.

SES recognizes that physical improvements to facilities are one step on the path towards sustainability. Achieving sustainability in the long-term means cultivating an ethic of social and environmental responsibility in all the things we do. Becoming a B-Corp is one way we are demonstrating our commitment and inviting our clients and partners to join us.

The Change We Seek®

At SES they are striving to create a new kind of company:

  • That builds sustainability and community into the core of their work
  • That helps their clients save energy and greenhouse gas emissions while continuing to reduce their own environmental impact
  • That plays a restorative role in their community, creating green jobs and a healthy economy
  • That inspires SES staff and those they work with to seek new ways to reflect their values in their own work and life.
What makes us a better company?
