Sustainability

Turning sustainability into success

Back when green was just a color — and not a national movement — Melvin Mark was already firmly committed to sustainable real estate practices. By combining progressive thinking with proactive solutions, our sustainable practices are good for tenants, good for business, and good for the environment. As active and engaged owners investing in our properties for the long term, we implement strategies that make properties more efficient, keep indoor air quality high, improve tenant comfort and productivity, and manage water efficiently — all while keeping our buildings profitable and competitive.

Along with maximizing natural light, energy efficient lighting and heating and cooling systems, we boast comprehensive recycling programs in a variety of our buildings to encourage tenants to recycle batteries, light bulbs, composted food and e-waste, in addition to the usual paper, cardboard and plastics.

For Melvin Mark, ensuring that our buildings are environmentally responsible, and healthy places to live and work is more than a passing fad, it’s a part of life.
