As a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ENERGY STAR® Partner and Green Power Partner, The Tower Companies consistently works to reduce our impact on the global environment by completing a corporate-wide inventory of our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, setting long-term reduction goals and annually reporting our progress to the EPA, The Climate Registry and to our stakeholders through the Tower Footprint, our annual sustainability report.
In 2008, we met our stated goal to achieve net-zero GHG emissions, officially becoming “carbon neutral” – through the EPA Climate Leader Program, the only real estate company in America to make this commitment. The Climate Leader program ended in August 2010 and we are now working with The Climate Registry to continually improve the energy efficiency of our buildings by further reducing our GHG emissions, as well as electricity and water usage. For this ongoing commitment, we have been recognized with National Leadership Awards by both the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy.
The Tower Companies is equally dedicated to improving indoor environments. Our Fortune-CreatingSM Building Architecture adheres to vedic, also known as vastu, design principles of Natural Law which incorporate orientation, placement and proportion, in order to improve occupant health and enhance job performance and success. These principles create not just an environment for you to work in, but an environment that works for you.
