Our Be Green Mission
Our mission is to build and maintain a culture of sustainability within the PLP community to the advantage of our residents and employees alike. Sustainability management is always top of mind, which means we make daily decisions using financial, human and natural resources as efficiently as possible—called the Triple Bottom Line. The goal is always to get the job done using as few resources as possible, or to work smarter not harder.

Green LivingWe are continually striving to make our communities as green as possible, and we make sustainable, environmentally friendly choices for our newer developments. By using low VOC paints and flooring, along with green cleaning products, we are creating a healthy living environment.
Through our Be Green program Pacific Living Properties continues to search for renewable applications that can be used to reduce our carbon footprint. We have successfully implemented solar panels and solar water heaters at some of our communities and we will continue to strive to grow our use of renewable energy.
RecyclingOur Be Green program encourages all associates and residents to reduce our waste. We continue to educate our associates in how to reduce waste and encourage recycling. At properties with community gardens we also encourage composting.
Water SavingIn many areas Pacific Living Properties operates where water is a resource that is scarce. Through our Be Green program we have aggressively pursued a water conservation program through low flow toilets, faucets and shower heads. We have embarked on a program in areas that have low rain fall to use drought tolerant landscaping, using extensive rock gardens and elimination of grass as well as low flow irrigation.
Energy SavingThe lowering of gas and electricity is a t the cornerstone of our Be Green program. The reducing of carbon emissions from power plants is critical to a cleaner and greener lifestyle for our communities and neighborhoods we live in.
At our communities we are pursuing conversions to LED lighting, Energy Star Appliances and air conditioning units, smart whisper fans, motion sensors and a variety of other energy efficiency features.
