Established in 2012, Verdical Group is a leading green building consulting firm focused on decarbonizing the built environment and inspiring a net zero future. A certified B Corporation and 1% for the Planet member company, Verdical Group donates 1% of our annual revenue (not just profit) to environmental nonprofit organizations. Verdical Group provides sustainability strategy; green event production; project management for building certifications like LEED, WELL, Fitwel, Living Building Challenge, and more; and engineering services such as building commissioning, energy modeling, daylight modeling, and life cycle assessments. As often as they can, they sneak out of the office early to get some great outdoors adventure time in as a team to stay connected to nature and remember why they do what they do. We’re a team of engineers, architects, builders, and environmentalists working on some of the greenest projects in the world with visionary institutions like NASA, Google, Johnson & Johnson, LAX, and GE. Verdical Group wrote the definition of "verdical" and define it as, "an upward trend in positive environmental impact." They believe nature is the greatest teacher and work to make the built environment function more like the natural environment.
