Buildings account for 39% of CO2 emissions in the United States, more than either the industrial or transportation sectors.

It may seem that every day there is a new designation for products and companies that go above and beyond what is required of them. At Verdical Group, we think that is a good thing. B Laboratory, the nonprofit organization responsible for certifying B Corporations (B Corps), claims “B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.” B Corp stands for Benefit Corporation, and B Lab strives to prove that businesses can pursue social justice, benefit the environment, and create an equitable organization, all while improving their financial success.
