Mad Dog strives to be a responsible steward of the environment. We seek to understand our impact and continuously improve our business practices to achieve the following goals: use resources responsibly; eliminate waste; minimize our carbon footprint; offer a selection of eco-friendly products to our clients; influence our subcontractors and suppliers to embrace sustainable practices; and be an example of sustainable business and construction practices for our community.
An example of our commitment to building a sustainable community is Mad Dog’s tasking Kristin Dozier, VP and Green Consultant, to focus over half of her time on learning about and promoting sustainable practices in our community. As part of the original initiatives of the Knight Foundation Creative Communities project, Sustainable Tallahassee was born. As Chair of the organizing committee and Founding President in 2008 and 2009, Kristin worked to establish an organization that is serving as a catalyst to establish sustainable projects and support green business opportunities throughout our community.
