Sustainability

Straughan is aligned to support development while improving the human and natural environment. We embrace the concept of sustainability which effectively integrates both long-term and short-term economic, social, and environmental considerations. We believe that our internal corporate practices and any external services we provide to our clients should further our goal of building a society based on sustainable development.

Our Building

We’ve recycled, reused, and transformed a 25 year-old office building into a showcase for sustainable possibilities! Our Headquarters at 10245 Old Columbia Road achieved a LEED Gold Rating! To learn more about the sustainable features, please explore the posters below:
