A Deeper Look: Verdical Group’s Social and Environmental Impact By the Numbers

By Kate Zeile

Though you won’t find “Verdical” in the dictionary, our Founder & CEO Drew Shula coined the term nearly ten years ago, describing an upward trend in environmental impact. Verdical Group is centered around being a force for good, and we are all about making a positive impact.

In our work, we strive to create the most sustainable, high-performing building projects and events possible. Through our annual Net Zero Conference and numerous other events and panel discussions that our team members participate in, we educate thousands of people each year on sustainability in the built environment and beyond. In our free time, we volunteer with local organizations and nonprofits to extend our positive impact to our local communities.

As a data-driven company, we’ve been tracking and quantifying our environmental and social impact since day one. Nearly ten years later, our impact in terms of resources saved, time volunteered, and people educated is sky-high. The graphic above demonstrates how our LEED projects have contributed to our environmental goals* and our educational events and volunteerism has made a social impact on our community.*

Beyond our external work, we also prioritize positive social and environmental impact in our company operations. Check out our *just dropped* 2021 Social & Environmental Impact Report, our first-ever annual report sharing Verdical Group’s dedication to our mission as it relates to our workers, environment, community, governance, and customer services.
