Happy Birthday LEED! 

March 30, 2015 marked the 15th Birthday of LEED. SIG had a LEED quinceañera‬ celebration and a champaign toast. Here’s to the next 15 years LEED! Did you know there were 12 original LEED pilot projects certified on the same day?

High Performance Building Summit in Atlanta

Sustainable Investment Group (SIG) wants to thank everyone who stopped by our booth this year at the BOMA/GA event on St. Patty’s Day (3/17). We had great conversations and made some new connections.

We had 5 winners in our Grand Prize drawing who will attend our LEED Green Associate class to be held at our headquarters on April 30th. 

A Different Type of Planting. What is a CSA?

Spring is here and many of us are planning our gardens and looking forward to the taste of homegrown tomatoes and vegetables over the summer.

If you do not have your own garden, have you ever considered joining a CSA? Learn exactly what a CSA is and some of the benefits in our most recent blog, here.
