ABOUT OUR NAME

Callida

Ivesia callida is a flowering plant that grows in the crevices of the granite cliffs in California’s San Jacinto Mountains. This plant is a perfect metaphor for the philosophy that is the core of Callida’s approach to building optimization. At Callida we believe that companies can use natural resources as sparingly as this scrappy plant and in the process generate powerful bottom-line financial results and significantly reduce environmental impact.
