I'm Tommy Linstroth, founder and CEO of Green Badger.

I’ve been involved with sustainable design and construction my entire career. I started as Director of Sustainability for a development company, then transitioned into running the consulting firm Trident Sustainability Group, and now as the founder and CEO of Green Badger.

I’m a huge proponent of not only sustainable design, but of the value of transparency and third-party verification. The challenge with these certifications is that the documentation process is a royal pain in the ass. I love LEED certification, but I hate LEED documentation. After pounding my head against the wall too many times and seeing 100 column spreadsheets in my sleep, I knew there had to be a better way, and thus Green Badger was born as a software solution to automate LEED projects.

And now, project teams can get all the LEED education they need with Green Badger Academy!
