Melissa Baldridge co-founded GreenSpot Global in 2010 to develop and create value in regenerative real estate by spinning energy, carbon, water, and waste meters backwards. Since then, she’s helped hundreds of clients with sustainability and financial analysis, development, land acquisition, and finished product sales worth over $340 million. She’s also modeled over 1 million square feet of property, helped clients place 236 MWs of solar power, and save hundreds of carbon tonnes and over 200 MWhs of electricity annually.
She’s nationally recognized for excellence and innovation by the National Green Building Standard, and GreenSpot was named a “Top Green Dealmaker” by the U.S. Green Building Council. Ms. Baldridge is also in candidacy for a master’s degree in sustainability with a focus on corporate innovation (Harvard University, 2020). Her areas of interest include regenerative building and activities, economic and financial analysis, energy and greenhouse gas metrics, green finance, and circular economics.
In her spare time, she plays drums and percussion (jazz, funk, house, Brazilian, and Cuban).
