Sustainability as the New Safety

June 12, 2012

A culture of sustainability exists when green practices become a habit.

(By Tommy Linstroth, as published in EDC Magazine, June 2012)

Government regulation and oversight is often looked at as cumbersome, bureaucratic and unnecessary. But it’s amazing when such oversight becomes soingrained into business practices that it simply becomes part of the corporate culture — so much so that it’s just how businesses operate, no questions asked.

I’ve been fortunate to be spending a fair amount of time lately working with a Fortune 500-type company to embed sustainability into its core culture. Greening a building is relatively straightforward, but an entire organization? That’s another story. There are plenty of great examples out there from Interface to Patagonia, but those initiatives were driven by passionate environmental visionaries rather than from the bottom or middle up. This process has been eye-opening to say the least, but in no way more so than my new perspective that for the sustainability movement to be truly successful, it needs to be 100 percent ingrained into the core corporate culture.

Trident Sustainability Group announces new LEED certifications – Sustainable Fellwood Phases 2 and 3 in Savannah, GA.

June 12, 2012

Sustainable Fellwood Phase 2 includes 8 multifamily buildings comprising 110 apartments, which all received LEED for Homes Gold certification. Phase 3, a 100 unit senior building, received LEED for Homes Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council. Sustainable Fellwood Phase 3 is only the second LEED Platinum building in Savannah, and one of only a handful of Platinum affordable housing projects nationwide. Trident Sustainability Group served as the LEED consultant on these projects, which were developed by The Woda Group and Parallel Housing.

Sustainable Fellwood is a 27-acre redevelopment project and continues to set the bar for green affordable housing. Phase 2 includes spray foam insulation, 16 SEER variable speed HVAC units, and low flow plumbing, while Phase 3 features many of the same green strategies but also hosts a 85 KW solar array on the roof – one of the largest in the region. Phase 1 of the project received LEED for Homes Gold certification in 2009 as well as LEED for Neighborhood Development Silver certification.

“Green building always had a stigma of being too expensive to do “, said Tommy Linstroth, Principal of Trident Sustainability Group. “However, if you can do LEED Gold and Platinum affordable housing projects, you can do green projects anywhere. Sustainable Fellwood shows that you can have high performance, healthy buildings without cost premiums.”
