Minimizing Environmental Impact
We set measurable short and long-term objectives that target reductions in electric and water usage as well as greenhouse gas emissions. Our commitment includes on-site renewable energy, conversion to LED lighting and installation of electric vehicle charging stations. Innovative green lease partnerships with tenants have led to the installation of solar panels and below-market electric rates for tenants.
As a result of these efforts, we have been recognized by GRESB as a Green Star recipient, and by the Institute for Market Transformation and U.S. Department of Energy Better Buildings Alliance as a Green Lease Leader at the highest Gold level.
