ABOUT US

VIBE is a Southern California based non-profit advocating for green building education, and the rapid scaling and expansion of green building practices since the built environment is responsible for about 40% of GHG emissions.  VIBE is working to help rapidly scale climate-friendly buildings with this crisis already costing us dearly including devastating impacts on our health, economies, and environment. With ongoing urbanization and development, building emissions are a growing threat leaving us very little time if we are successful in holding global temperature rise to 1.5°C.

 

We have existing solutions and technologies to build more sustainable buildings that are healthier for their occupants and for their communities - but these solutions MUST be scaled more quickly, which VIBE intends to do as guided by our four core values each with their own goals:

​​Education and Empowerment - Promoting a sustainability minded workforce by developing educational resources designed for academic institutes and corporate training.

 

Environmental Stewardship - Championing a built environment that contributes to a stable climate and balanced ecosystems.

 

Collaborative Impact - Advancing scalable strategies through impactful partnerships.

 

Social Responsibility - Advocating for an inclusive built environment that prioritizes equity and well-being for all.

 

VIBE was created by Verdani Partners, a leading full-service ESG consulting firm specializing in sustainable real estate. VIBE was conceived in 2017 to expand upon Verdani’s research, education and collaborative engagement platforms to accelerate our collective impacts for a resilient and sustainable global future.

VIBE's vision is for a built environment that is decarbonized, resilient, and lives in harmony with nature.
