Values

  • 🚀
    The future is awesome — We’re working to make construction a net-zero carbon emissions industry. We also want it to grow in other ways: for us to build more homes, bigger shared buildings, and more beautiful structures, while offering construction workers great jobs with good, equitable pay.
  • 🛠️
    Jobs in every ZIP code — Clean energy and electrification will take all of us, across the United States, and beyond.
  • ☮️
    We are a part of a broader movement — We don’t view others in climatetech as our competitors. They are our brothers and sisters in arms.
  • 🤝
    Be worthy of trust — In construction, trust breakdowns lead to serious consequences: time and cost overruns, lawsuits, and, in the worst case, safety issues. We act in a trustworthy manner ourselves and we work to create trust between members of our community.
  • 🌎
    No trade-offs between people and planet — We only do things that are good for the climate and good for workers; the ends don’t justify the means and we don’t sacrifice one for the other.
  • Long-term thinking, short-term urgency — We believe we’re all going to work here for a decade. What decision can we make today that we’ll be happy with ten years from now? We do this work for our grandchildren, not our quarterly earnings. At the same time, we know that it’s the 11th hour for climate change, so we work quickly and have a bias to action.
