We understand that sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement in reducing waste and energy use and in utilizing more sustainable building practices.
That’s why we commissioned The Brendle Group and Colorado State University’s Institute for the Built Environment in ’07 to facilitate a company-wide action plan for sustainability. The plan aligned our core values with a triple bottom line of People, Planet and Profit. The action plan created a path to achieve measurable levels of sustainable development practices both within our company and within our communities.
We are taking it one step further and partnering with Conservation International to help protect nature as a source of food, fresh water and a stable climate. Conserving nature and its benefits is imperative to help maintain a prosperous world.
One of the cornerstones of our commitment to sustainability is High Plains Environmental Center (HPEC), a not-for-profit local organization responsible for protecting 275 acres of 十博苹果下载安装’s lakes, wetlands and open space.
Formed in 2001 through a partnership with McWhinney and McStain Neighborhoods, HPEC offers educational programs for the members of our community, demonstrates restorative examples of land-stewardship for native plant and wildlife habitat, and supports local developers, planners, consultants and residents on sustainable design.
