Reframing Sustainability with 7group
Thursday, 14 June 2012
7group, a group of professionals dedicated to developing “sustainable and regenerative solutions” for their clients’ building projects, has chosen to partner with Carbonfund.org to calculate and neutralize their annual operational emissions.
The 7group consultants working with project design and construction teams help owners and communities design, construct and operate their buildings with emphasis on energy efficiency, use of natural lighting and integrative design decisions that help reduce environmental impact. The firm focuses in seven core areas in order to integrate sustainable solutions with practical implementation of each project’s design objectives. Earlier this year, 7group’s design consulting helped the Arthur W. Ferguson Elementary School of the York School District in Pennsylvania achieve LEED Platinum certification (Schools v2.0), becoming the first school in Pennsylvania to attain a LEED Platinum rating.
For the past three years, 7group has utilized carbon offsets to neutralize their operational emissions. For 2011 annual operational emissions, 7group chose to use Carbonfund.org’s online business emissions calculator to compute then offset its annual operational greenhouse gas emissions, by supporting Carbonfund.org’s high quality and third-party verified renewable energy projects. We thank them for their work in sustainable building practices and for their commitment to sustainable business operations.
