Our Team →

“Sustainability in Policy and Practice" is more than our tag line. Simply put, it represents our life-long commitment to improving the environment.


All of our assignments utilize common elements: collaboration, inclusivity and transparency, listening and educating. Our depth of experience with public and private institutions as well as large-scale developments means we know how to work successfully with large, complex project teams. From policy makers to planners and the general public, to architects, technical consultants and facility managers, our experience allows us to develop balanced strategies that earn broad acceptance.

Zinner Consultants was among the first to do CHPS K-12 work both designing and implementing school district programs and certifying projects. We are also one of the oldest green building consulting firms in southern California. Our commitment extends deep into the communities where we live and work and with the master planned projects we advise — we’ve worked on Playa Vista for over 20 years designing pioneering green building programs, serving as environmental mitigation monitor and managing the LEED certification of individual projects.
