Reducing Energy Consumption to Help Our Communities – And the Environment
Going green isn’t just good for the environment – it’s also good for your community’s bottom line. FirstService Residential's California team has taken a knowledge-based approach to green and sustainability and is proud that our team includes LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited associates who have earned their US Green Building Council certification.
These motivated associates have taken the initiative to become knowledge leaders committed to finding cost effective solutions for everyday administrative and managerial functions. They take the knowledge and practices they’ve learned through their rigorous studies and implement them in the field, working to identify areas where our clients can operate their properties in a more sustainable, energy efficient manner.
As part of our corporate philosophy, we believe that driving knowledge leadership in sustainability will allow us to effectively implement “green” best practices in our clients’ communities, as well as in our own operations. We are committed to environmental sustainability and energy management through a practical and knowledge-based approach that includes:
Educating our own leaders, associates, Board members and homeowners
“Greening” our operations procedures
Educating our clients about sustainability best practices for their communities and operations
Benchmarking energy usage to measure improvement
