At Città Group, we are committed to building practices that protect the environment. We are proud to show our commitment to this cause through our voluntary certification and membership in Built Green Canada. We are one of a select group to have received certification in the Victoria area. At the Città Group, we support the notion that we all win when we protect our environment and we are excited to see the building community taking an active role in preserving our environment.
In fact, our personal passion for the issue has led us to adopt a leadership role in the development of this sustainable business model. Since 2010, Bill Patterson, president and CEO of Città group, has joined the organization’s board of directors that oversees the activities and decisions in all of Built Green’s Canada-wide operations.
