Colonnade BridgePort Joins United States Green Building Council

Colonnade BridgePort is now a proud member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

USGBC is a nonprofit organization that supports the development of prosperous, healthy and resilient communities through the transformation of the built environment. Through its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building program, USGBC is committed to transforming how our buildings and communities are designed, constructed and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves quality of life.

According to USGBC, LEED-certified buildings are proven to save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people. They are critical in addressing the climate crisis, meeting ESG goals, enhancing resilience, and supporting more equitable communities.

The key benefit of USGBC membership is exclusive access to key LEED resources, including courses and credential maintenance webinars, which will provide the Colonnade BridgePort team with tools to help our clients realize sustainability goals for their properties.

“Colonnade BridgePort’s USGBC membership joins us with other businesses, community leaders, professionals, and innovators working to accomplish a single bold vision: healthy, efficient and equitable buildings and communities for all,” said Brandon Malleck, Vice President, Innovation, ESG and Advisory Services, who also serves as member of USGBC’s LEED Existing Building Consensus Committee. “It is another example of our company’s commitment to reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainable business practices to make a positive impact on the communities in which we live, work, and operate.”

As part of that committee, Brandon, on behalf of Colonnade BridgePort, is representing the interests of Canadian landlords by helping to develop the newest version of LEED for Existing Buildings. LEED v5 Beta is expected to be released at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in late September.
