ABOUT US

You worked hard to own the technical elements of sustainability, environmental assessment methods and tools, but have you ever been given the right leadership tools to stand up tall in front of your clients and design team?

At Green Gorilla, our vision is to empower sustainability professionals by providing them with the best toolkit to stand confidently on their own feet, to take on projects equipped with all the techniques needed to win the team over, to turn negative situations into positive ones, and to gain all the support required to accomplish their projects’ goals.

I founded Green Gorilla Consultants Ltd because I, like you, am an advocate of sustainability.

In fact, sustainability has been my main focus for the last 12 years, throughout my working life at the leading sustainability body in Britain, BRE. I know the subject well because I was one of the technical writers of many non-domestic BREEAM schemes and I co-wrote the publication ‘Integrating BREEAM throughout the Design Process’, published in 2010 to make the BREEAM process more streamlined and obtain higher certification ratings. The book has been adopted as a reference guide by thousands of sustainability professionals in their projects, and was the bestseller of the publisher in its first year of publication.

Throughout my career at BRE I’ve also trained hundreds of people on BREEAM and Site Sustainability Manager courses. I had therefore the good fortune of meeting and getting to know many sustainability professionals and heard their frustrations first-hand, like having to negotiate their way to a successful project’s outcome, starting from a difficult place where sustainability is not a priority in their stakeholders’ agenda; or being appointed too late in a project, and having to play catch up, when most opportunities to integrate sustainability criteria are lost.

Talking with professionals about their frustrations prompted me to want to address these issues, using my training, insight in the industry and sustainability knowledge and skills.

Whether you are working with LEED®, BREEAM® or other methodologies, we can help you overcome your daily struggles with modern, practical, individualised and fun training.
