Our Commitment to Sustainability

Artboard 24

What if every company invested enough in environmental projects to completely offset the pollution produced by their operations?

We believe they can, and should, so we’re committed to setting an example: based on data from respected sources, we are offsetting more than 100% of the pollution we’ve identified from our direct business activities.

We also offset 100% of the estimated annual electrical usage of the homes we sell for fifteen years, and we’ll reset the clock if the home is sold through us again.

The full report is available here.
