2019 Sustainability Report Released

GBA News

Grumman/Butkus continues documenting its efforts to “walk the walk” of sustainability with the release of its annual Sustainability Report.

In 2013, the firm released its first annual corporate sustainability report. We recently completed the seventh edition, detailing our current scope of services and other corporate characteristics, as well as our 2019 advancements in reducing energy and water consumption and in responsible purchasing and waste management.

G/BA is a strong proponent of measurement and verification, and we are pleased to share data about our own resource use with our staff, clients, vendors, professional colleagues, and the general public. We hope this annual publication not only provides a report card but also offers ideas that inspire and challenge other firms to strive toward sustainable operations.
