About Verdical Group

Founded in a California garage in 2012, Verdical Group is a full-service green building consulting firm headquartered in Los Angeles. A certified B Corporation and 1% for the Planet member company, Verdical Group donates 1% of our annual revenue (not just profit) to environmental nonprofit organizations.

In their daily work, Verdical Group helps their clients build high performance green buildings that use healthy materials, and are energy and water efficient. As often as they can, they sneak out of the office early to get some great outdoors adventure time in as a team to stay connected to nature and remember why we do what we do.

Verdical Group clients include high profile organizations such as: General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Cisco, Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles County, JLL, LA Community College District, SoCalGas, Southern California Edison, USGBC-LA, Pankow, Ramada Inn, and Seagate.

We're a for-profit company, but don't have a singular focus on profit. We create value for our team, community, and the environment, by maximizing the power of our business to do good.

The Change We Seek®

Verdical Group wrote the definition of "verdical" and define it as, "an upward trend in positive environmental impact." They believe nature is the greatest teacher and work to make the built environment function more like the natural environment.
