Operates In


Verdecon is fully aware of the impact the built environment and the construction industry is having on the planet and subsequently the climate. We also knew that we wanted to be driven by more than profit and loss, we wanted to pass our knowledge down to the future generation and wanted to show other contractors that things can be done differently. We wanted our business to have purpose and be known for more than just the things we put together. B Corp was the opportunity to show other builders and tradespeople that while we're aware that we're doing damage, if everyone pulls together collectively, we can have a massive impact and literally build a better planet. We have coupled B Corp certification with certified carbon neutrality through Pathzero. While we're not doing everything right just yet, we're confident that we are on the right path to creating meaningful change.
