Sustainability

Seneca Group is dedicated to helping clients examine how green incentives and policies might impact their operations, site selection, strategy and investments. We are a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and provide leadership to help clients demonstrate their unique environmental and social values. With nine LEED Accredited Professional (LEED®-AP) development managers, along with the real estate and development experience of these and other members in the firm, Seneca Group is positioned to advise clients as they navigate the opportunities green initiatives and sustainable development may provide to their businesses and bottom lines. With our guidance, some of our clients have decided to document their sustainable solutions by using the LEED green building certification program.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (LEED Platinum)
St. Thomas School (LEED Gold)
Expedia (LEED CI Silver )
Starbucks (LEED Silver)
