Greenwood Consulting Group (GCG) provides sustainability consulting services for projects pursuing green building certification, climate services, and green business initiatives. Our team brings 20 years of experience as leaders in the green building industry. Insight into emerging green building practices and technologies provides a unique perspective for clients seeking sustainable performance goals. Sara Greenwood founded GCG in 2012 and is a leader in the green building industry. She is recognized as a LEED Accredited Professional and one of few LEED Fellows. She serves on the US Green Building Council’s LEED Advisory Committee and local board. In addition, Ms. Greenwood is an Accredited Professional in the WELL Building Standard and is a WELL Faculty member.

Understanding our client’s building performance and occupant wellbeing goals are GCG’s top priority. Our projects vary in building type and geographic location, making each project uniquely different. We work with the project team to establish sustainable program targets to ensure they are realized upon completion. We have consulted on more than 60 million square feet of space including multifamily residential, higher education, hospitality, aviation, sports arenas, retail, commercial offices, government buildings, and healthcare. Expertise is in LEED, Arc, Green Globes, CHPS, ENERGY STAR, SITES, Parksmart, TRUE, and WELL Building certifications. Our team is also well-versed in meeting the Guiding Principles for government projects.

Our demonstrated work in the area of climate services for higher education institutions, municipalities, and companies continues to grow. Understanding our client’s emission reduction targets, conducting a baseline emissions inventory, and climate action plan is essential to being transparent in today’s world. Through an exploratory process, GCG uncovers what sustainable practices currently exist within an organization and then works to generate effective initiatives that meet the needs of the organization. We determine tangible milestones through a collaborative approach. Environmental, Social and Governmental (ESG) reporting refers to the disclosure of data covering a company’s operations across these areas. Disclosing ESG data helps investors understand risks and opportunities associated with a company or organization. Our team supports the development of this transparency tool and reporting methodology.

GCG is a small, women-owned business with all remote team members located across the US. We collaborate via web-conference all day long and meet in person a few times a year.
