Corporate Responsibility/Saving our Natural Resources
Manco Abbott takes responsibility for and believes in sustainable business principles. It has become a part of our organization’s culture and we continue to find new ways to save valuable resources for our properties and future generations. Manco Abbott is focused on direct action in four areas of our business practices: Energy Efficiency, Water Conservation, Recycling & Environmental Waste Reduction. Our practices benefit the environment and help make the communities we service happier and healthier places to live, work and play. Each area requires education, constant behavior changes and a strong commitment from our staff, clients, vendors and residents/tenants.
Our Goal is to reduce our carbon footprint by understanding current and past energy usage so we can identify opportunities to improve energy performance.
Several commercial buildings and apartment communities have made great strides in reducing energy needs by investing in solar power, EV Charging Stations, retrofitting lighting and irrigation systems and working with all our partners to enhance our energy reduction efforts
New low flow irrigation systems and low flow plumbing fixtures at most properties prevent water waste. Drip irrigation, satellite controlled sprinkler systems that regulate water usage and boost water reduction are being installed at most locations
Manco Abbott along with local agencies work to educate residents and tenants at all our buildings on better disposal practices. All our properties adhere to strict policies to insure recycling is seriously considered when vendors, residents and tenants dispose of their trash.
ENVIRONMENTAL WASTE REDUCTION
In addition to encouraging paperless practices, Manco Abbott works with contractors who adopt environmentally friendly practices. Whenever possible we seek eco- friendly options to reduce environmental waste.
