Sustainability 101

20 Years of Sustainability. Thank you from Great Forest

Blacksmith InstituteI can’t believe it’s been 20 years since Great Forest started. Thank you for being our partners in sustainability, for working with us when green wasn’t yet fashionable, and for being part of a revolution in business that continues to amaze me.
When Great Forest started, the term sustainability did not really exist; buildings were green because of paint, not performance; recycling was almost unknown, and energy efficiency was barely mentionedMy how things have changed!! Great Forest has been a key part of this pioneering push to green America.

* To date, Great Forest has worked with more than half of all commercial office space and hotels in Manhattan and over 1,500 buildings across the country, covering approximately 350 million square feet.

* So far, we are responsible for up to two-thirds of commercial recycling in NYC, with as much as 50,000 tons of material diverted from landfills each  day.

* For LEED and ISO 14001 work, we consider ourselves a leading agency in the region, and our energy services span hundreds of clients.

Beyond our NYC home, Great Forest is now in Westchester, Rockland County, Connecticut, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago.

We couldn’t have done it without you. Here’s looking forward to another great 20 years ahead with you.

President, CEO, Great Forest
