Hacienda leads by example in its efforts to promote sustainability. Its dedication to conservation starts in the development’s management office, which recently became recognized as a green business under the Alameda County Green Business Program. Hacienda also works with the county and other Hacienda businesses to help them achieve the same certification.
The Hacienda management office went through a rigorous analysis to be certified under the program, including facilities and practices. As part of the program, the management office uses green products and practices in landscaping and purchasing, and its facilities are upgraded with environmentally sustainable features like energy efficient lighting and low-flow toilets. Many Hacienda programs are operated with similar objectives.
Hacienda regularly advances activities that accomplish diverse sustainability goals. Whether through water conservation, commute assistance, energy reduction, waste diversion or education, whenever possible Hacienda advances best sustainability practices.
