ABOUT VERDIS GROUP (Read this; it’s important.)
Our purpose is to create a thriving and resilient world. The work commonly falls into two categories: 1) climate action and sustainability master plans and 2) ongoing advisory services to assist clients with implementation of operational and behavioral strategies. In both cases, it’s important for us to be extremely knowledgeable of the subject matter at hand. We dig into the data, find trends and opportunities, crunch the numbers, and then effectively communicate the relevant information. Once the plan is in place, we work hand-in-hand with our clients to get things done. The implementation can and does take many forms: helping to facilitate green teams and their projects, studying institutional-scale composting programs, overhauling a waste and recycling process, identifying ongoing energy conservation measures, and then tracking all data in order to measure progress.
Our culture is extremely important. We love the work and it shows in how we approach it. We involve the entire team in decision-making, and we expect everyone to work hard but not too much.
Our culture guides our ship and ensures we are focused on our mission. To that end, we work hard to adhere to the following Verdis values:
Passion. We believe we have the power to transform business as usual and make our world resilient and thriving.
Interconnectedness. We recognize the interdependence of the world’s ecological, social, and economic systems and believe decisions should consider and strengthen all three.
Integrity. We’re not going to greenwash, and we won’t let our clients either. Seriously, it’s not an option.
Collaboration. We believe we’re not alone, and we rely on our friends, clients, community, and colleagues to help us create a resilient future.
Inclusivity. We believe a thriving and resilient world is an equitable one, and we are committed to creating this world with all people.
Continuous Improvement. We have a thirst for learning and are always searching for ways to do and be our work better.
Innovation. We believe it’s no coincidence that ecosystem edges are exceptionally diverse, making them innovative, resilient and dynamic. We’re not going over the edge, but we’ll hang out there for a spell; it’s a great place to be.
Verdis Group is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity of thought, approach and perspective in our work and in our employees.
