Who we are

Concept Green is a woman-owned Limited Liability Corporation based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We work internationally, providing sustainability consulting and support services to large multi-facility organizations. We specialize in sustainability program development, performance measures and reporting. Originally founded in 2008 as McChesney Consulting, in 2009 we expanded our corporate capabilities and mission to become Concept Green, LLC.

Concept Green works with businesses, non-profits and governmental agencies of all sizes. The firm works across all industries, including health care, electric utility, dairy, manufacturing and social ventures. Each year, Concept Green gives back to its community through a pro bono project or task force participation, with a special emphasis on regional green job development, environmental protection and conservation, and social benefit.
