We are serious about reducing our footprint on the environment. By choosing to recycle the carpeting in our apartments, we are diverting over six tons of carpet from landfills per year, on average.
Additionally, as a triple bottom line company, environmental responsibility is a crucial part of our holistic–investment approach. Today, every Urban Village incorporates a number of sustainable practices into the daily lives of both residents and property, including:
•Resident education on toxic materials, reducing carbon footprints, and recycling
•Recycling and re–use programs
•Central drop–off locations for safe disposal of batteries, paint, and used CFL bulbs
•On–site analysis of energy and water efficiency, with replacement programs for outdated equipment
•Solar and wind installations, where applicable
•Installation of non–toxic building materials and supplies
