Going Green - 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 finances. At FirstService Residential Maryland, we are committed to sustainability and 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 stepped up to become knowledge leaders who are committed to finding cost effective solutions for everyday administrative and managerial functions. They strive 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 allows us to effectively implement “green” best practices in our clients’ communities and in our own offices. We strongly believe in environmental sustainability and energy management, achieving it through a practical and knowledge-based approach that includes:
Educating our own leaders, associates, Board members and homeowners
“Greening” our operations procedures
Benchmarking energy usage to measure improvement
Educating our clients about sustainability best practices for their buildings and operations
