Highstreet will create highly desirable environmentally smarter real estate. All our new communities will not use carbon for energy and will be net zero ready. We set extremely aggressive industry leading targets for energy demand and usage in our buildings and verify it through construction and through monitoring operations. We strive to maximize waste diversion, with a goal to reach 85% diversion by 2025.
We have in office recycling and composting, we are a largely paperless office and encourage biking to work (and are a past winner of Bike to Work Week), and we discourage single use plastic and styrofoam for meals.
Employee orientation includes Built Green training and our commitment to build net zero ready apartments and condos. We participate in industry conferences on building environmentally friendly buildings and we communicate our knowledge internally and externally through social media.
We are committed to leading the industry in minimizing the impact of new construction on the world and encouraging our employees to minimize their own impact on the world through daily actions.
