About Us
Sustainability
think globally. act localy.
At Laramar, we understand the critical importance of doing our part, and we know that environmental responsibility is a value our community members share. That's why we've formed the "Laramar Green Team" to explore ways our properties can be environmentally smarter.

At The Laramar Group, we strive to create vibrant, sustainable communities where our residents are part of the positive impact on our environment. To achieve our mission it is critical that we operate properties with sustainability in mind, and that the choices we make - from the products that we purchase to our operational practices to how we engage with our residents on the topic of sustainability - become a part of who we are at The Laramar Group. We are excited about our sustainability journey, and are committed to being a leader in the industry by doing our part to protect the environment, engage with our residents and continue to deliver positive financial results for our clients and investors. We have developed a series of sustainability standards and purchasing guidelines that serve as a platform for our company as we implement our sustainability program across our portfolio. These standards and guidelines are divided into three distinct areas, and provide our community management professionals with the tools and resources that we need to not only implement our program, but to advance our sustainability efforts for the future. These three areas are:

Sustainable
Infrastructure

a focus on sustainable purchasing for community improvements as well as product and equipment replacements.

Ongoing Operations & Maintenance

including sustainable practices and purchasing of ongoing consumable items and products that are used on a regular basis.

Resident Engagement & Employee Participation

a focus on sustainable purchasing for community improvements as well as product and equipment replacements.

We Consider The Environment in All of Our Business Decisions

We all play a role in preserving the environment, for ourselves and for future generations. We have developed these sustainability standards and purchasing guidelines not only to provide each of us with the tools and resources we need to be successful, but to demonstrate our commitment to a better, more sustainable future.
