Sustainability means we steward resources to minimize the impact we have on the environment – in our business practices, in building design, materials and methods, through transit oriented development, and in our daily property operations and maintenance.
Residents win with a more comfortable and healthy indoor environment, lower utility bills, opportunities to recycle and reduce water use, and educational programs that give them the information they need to have a positive impact on the environment.
Residents are very receptive to the information and opportunity to make a difference. After ‘Go Green’ workshops, kids were able to explain greenhouse gas emissions and the importance of recycling to their families. They also reduced their own use and improved their sorting recycling from other waste during our summer programs.
Across the organization and within our portfolio, we focus on efficient use of the resources we have available and on building a future that is sustainable.
