Columbia Green Opens Mid-Atlantic Office in Support of Local Sustainability and Green Initiatives
Portland, OR. - (February 12, 2014) - Columbia Green Technologies (Columbia Green), provider of green roof systems, announced today the opening of their Mid-Atlantic sales office to support green roof adoption in the New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia regions. Kevin Stasi, Regional Sales Manager, will staff the office; he brings Columbia Green over 20 years of experience in the green building products industry.
"Columbia Green has proudly installed green roof projects in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York, and we opened a local office to support regional stormwater management and green infrastructure efforts. Green Roofs are a critical tool in creating healthy places and sustainable urban environments," says Vanessa Keitges, President and CEO of Columbia Green.
New Jersey’s Green Infrastructure Initiative and Green City, Clean Waters, the Philadelphia Water Department's 25-year plan to protect and enhance watersheds, represent the region’s progressive approach to stormwater management. Green infrastructure methods are management practices that address stormwater runoff through soils, or reuse; the use of green infrastructure encourages the idea that stormwater is a resource that can be reused, instead of being treated as a nuisance that needs to be removed as quickly as possible.
