DCarbon is a consulting organization capable of creating a repeatable and scalable business model for the implementation of sustainability that constitutes added value in the real-estate sector. We connect the dots and bridges many of the professional knowledge gaps that currently exist between today’s “business as usual” design practices and those required to successfully meet or exceed high performance green building code requirements. We apply our knowledge of green building in practice so our clients can make more informed, cost-effective and sustainable design decisions.
The subject of sustainability is complex and the possibilities endless. DCarbon provides a complete and comprehensive suite of sustainability services tailored specifically to our clients’ requirements.

In 2014, Greece welcomed the first LEED Platinum building which was completed under the sustainability management consulting of DCarbon. The Hellenic American Educational Foundation (HAEF) Preschool & Kindergarten was certified in late 2014 with LEED Platinum.
Accordingly this project has become a showcase of exemplary performance in sustainable design and construction. Using the LEED Rating System to guide the process from start to finish, the project team employed a variety of strategies to reduce energy and water use, create a healthy indoor environment, rationalize resource demand and implement innovative strategies.
"Not only is this a proud moment for DCarbon, this is a great moment of pride for our entity as Greece now houses the 1st LEED Platinum building in the country, thus setting a new milestone in the local real-estate development."
