Rochelle "Sheli" Nilsson currently oversees the risk management department for one of the largest remodeling companies in the nation, Treeium Inc.  She has been part of the Green Movement since she was a young girl. Being an avid lover of nature and the ocean she is constantly on the lookout for innovative techniques to help reduce the carbon footprint of the company, the operations and individually. Treeium, was one of the pioneers in eco-friendly remodeling by minimizing the affects of building industry, which is notorious to be a major contributor to our pollution.  First they digitized their contracts.  Second, they partnered with Tree People to plant a tree for every remodel project they do.  They set examples to minimize their affect on the environment from power usage, managing the construction waste, etc. They educate the construction workersabout the effects of chemicals and toxicities the workers and communities can be exposed to through construction process.

From Treeium’s standpoint, there are two aspects of green home:  One is energy efficiency, which people are more keen for these days because it affects their wallet; then there’s the “healthy home” aspect, which affects their wellbeing.

Now there’s been a huge shift in the industry where many companies are jumping on the band wagon to offer more eco-friendly materials. Plus the workers are becoming more familiar with green building.   As the prices of materials and labor are becoming more competitive, the businesses building green becomes more profitable.

By going green, it affects your health, your wallet and our community.  Treeium try to be a pioneer in doing the ethical and right thing to do while being profitable.
