Sustainability

ESSEX IS COMMITTED to identifying and implementing sustainable practices throughout the organization, from our existing communities and operations to our newly developed properties. We promote the efficient use of natural resources in order to reduce our impact on the environment, improve our residence’s experience, and maximize value for our shareholders.

In 2006, the Company began to incorporate sustainable practices into its development program.

In 2008, Essex formed the Resource Management Department to research and implement sustainable investments, rebates programs, and efficiency improvements at its operating communities.

In 2009, Essex completed its first sustainable certified community. Today, every Essex community has certain sustainable practices implemented.

ESSEX HAS PARTNERED with the local community at more than 100 of its properties to participate in energy efficiency and water conservation programs, receiving over $5 million worth of installations at no cost to the Company.
