Conerstone’s LEED Accredited Professionals promote a holistic approach by considering how sustainable building methods affect the total lifecycle cost of a project as well as the community and human benefits. Achieving long-term balance by creating and maintaining conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony is a shared responsibility we have with our clients, teammates and community. Protecting the environment and conserving resources sets the tone for the operational life of a project—from our initial design and engineering considerations to the processes and methods we use to mitigate impacts from construction. Our customers and communities benefit from the positive environmental outcomes delivered by our people, projects, and practices.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs.” We generate sustainable alternatives in the construction and management of our projects, including reducing material requirements, waste to landfill, and water and energy use. In addition, we advocate for and implement sustainable design and sound environmental practices that make your business more attractive to shareholders, and often result in operational cost savings.
