VG Founder & CEO Signs LEAD Statement on Corporate Environmental Leadership


It is time for companies to leverage their power and influence to accelerate climate policies. More than 400 sustainability professionals have signed the “LEAD Statement,” which calls for companies to LEAD on climate action by agreeing to the following:

  • Leave obstructing trade associations;
  • Elevate climate policy as a company priority;
  • Advocate publicly for effective binding climate policies; and
  • Demonstrate real commitment to the collective action needed to achieve the just and equitable transition from fossil fuels agreed on at COP28.

Verdical Group’s Founder & CEO is a proud signatory and advocate for using business for good. Verdical Group does not accept money from companies whose majority of revenue comes from the fossil fuel industry and officially divested from fossil fuels, tobacco, prisons, and firearms in early 2022.

We have officially offset our entire historical carbon footprint dating back to the company’s founding in 2012, plus ten percent, going above and beyond net zero to become a carbon negative company. We annually measure our annual Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions, which encompass our office space, employee commuting, waste, and procurement. We are also proud members of the B Corp Climate Collective and The Climate Pledge, collaborations of organizations dedicated to achieving net zero by 2030.
