The Greenspoint District has always worked to make the community a safe, attractive and economically viable activity center. That focus remains the same, but the organization is now adding sustainability to the priority list.
A growing number of employees are seeking out green workplaces, and consumers are asking for environmentally friendly business practices.
The District is gearing up to help meet this new demand. District employees are learning everything they can about sustainability and are becoming a resource for the community. Everyone is looking for innovative ways to make the area greener. District staff believes a sustainable community will not only attract new business and development, but in some cases help a company’s bottom line.
Greenspoint is already ahead of the curve. Thanks to Hines, Greenspoint Plaza recycled over 732 tons of paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum, plastic, and electronics last year, diverting 41 percent of our waste from landfills. But we can and will do more. No change is too small. Here in our office, we’re double-siding paper, dimming lights and using dishes instead of disposable plates and cups. In the coming months we will be announcing a few exciting green initiatives.
