At GCB, we are concerned with the environment and the effects of global warming and are committed to environmental stewardship. The City of St. Petersburg has made a commitment to shift away from energy generated by fossil fuels to investments in clean, renewable energy. The City has an Integrated Sustainability Action Plan (ISAP), with renewable energy at the heart of it. To that end, GCB will do its part to adhere to the City’s ISAP. Our building was constructed as an energy efficient building using green building practices. Additionally, we have installed at 10.65 kW solar energy system consisting of 30 solar panels to power a sizeable portion of our operation to limit our Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. Over the life of the system, an estimated 324 tons of CO2 will be eliminated from our footprint, which is the equivalent of planting 7,549 trees or a reduction in over 33,000 gallons of gas burned. Other sustainability efforts include 30 bike racks, an EV Charging Station and Skylights in the production space.
