In honor of Earth Day, The Real Deal checked in with some of South Florida’s residential and commercial real estate companies to find out about their latest green initiatives. Here’s what several firms had to say.

What is the most recent green initiative your company introduced?

Daniel Heisler, executive vice president at Adler Group

We are enacting many energy-savings measures that are promoting environmentally conscious work spaces and reducing operating costs such as: investing in energy management systems that automatically regulate a/c units; applying window treatments to reduce the heat load on a building; switching to the most efficient lighting systems; and upgrading plumbing fixtures to minimize water consumption.

What are the top three ways your company is green?

Ron Shuffield, president of EWM

1) Our corporate office is located in a LEED Gold building in Coral Gables 2) we have begun doing more to educate the public about ways to make their homes more “green” 3) we have eliminated paper cups and plates in our corporate office, and recycle trash in each of our offices.

What is your company’s most interesting green feature?

Eric Duchon, manager of sustainability strategies at Cushman and Wakefield

 

[Cushman] challenges its portfolio of managed properties in the U.S. annually to reduce year-over-year energy consumption, water use, and waste disposal by 10 percent. The challenge acknowledges environmental achievements through an internal recognition and awards program.
