Sustainable Communities Initiative

EAH Housing recently launched the Building Sustainable Communities Initiative, a company wide effort built upon the three E’s of sustainability: environmental quality, economic vitality, and social equity. When assessing the environmental impact of any project, EAH considers the life cycle of a property, from site selection, land-use planning, and architectural design to construction materials and maintenance requirements. Some examples of these multi-faceted efforts to decrease the communities’ ecological footprints include: PV installation, material-efficient framing, passive lighting, locally sourced and recycled materials, Energy Star appliances, low-flow fixtures, irrigation-free native landscaping, use of less-toxic and low VOC materials, and the creation of a Green Operations and Maintenance Best Practices Manual.
