Sustainability

We are committed to creating healthy and environmentally responsible rental communities – and those aren’t just buzzwords. We have structured our business model on decreasing energy consumption, diverting waste, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and minimizing the environmental impact of our apartment building operations.

“Every one of our environmental initiatives has been driven by our desire to be sustainable over the long term. We operate rental apartment buildings that consume gas, water, electricity and other resources and that house thousands of people, so we are in a position to make a tangible difference in the world,” says Paul Sander, Hollyburn Director. “Because we have the opportunity to do so, we have the responsibility to do so.”

The renovation of long-standing rental apartment buildings is the foundation of Hollyburn’s true sustainability model. By employing technological advances to all mechanical systems, retrofitting critical building infrastructure and in-suite appliances, and educating our residents and employees on what it means to live green we contribute to healthier communities today and for future generations.

Here are some of the ways that Hollyburn works so you can live green:
