At the Natural Resources Defense Council we started by refining their 3-year Sustainable Operations Plan. We have advised them on various projects both large and small, ranging from office renovations to strategic and operational initiatives.
On the buildings side, we served as their owners representative for multiple office fit-outs, helping with all of the details from site selection to keeping projects as close to being on-time and on-budget as possible. We continue to help them with green building certifications. Their Chicago office became the first tenant-led fit-out in the world to achieve Living Building Challenge (LBC) Petal Certification (and LEED Platinum). We led LBC certification of their Beijing office, and are certifying their Chicago expansion and their San Francisco office (both underway). We have also helped with office-space management.
We have helped with numerous other projects such as:
- Their 1st ever GRI report (Level A)
- Business travel analysis with cost and emissions reduction recommendations
- Analyzing energy savings from simultaneous energy efficiency projects
- Renewable energy purchasing and offset strategy
