Alliance Residential Company, the fourth largest multifamily manager and one of the most active developers in the nation, has been awarded a Platinum level Phoenix Green Business Leader certification from the City of Phoenix. Alliance is the first multifamily company in Phoenix to achieve the Green Business Leader certification, earning the highest designation.
Alliance Residential will be recognized for the Green Business Leader achievement at an upcoming special event with the Phoenix Mayor and City Council members.
“We are honored to be the first multifamily company in Phoenix to receive this certification,” said Kelly Vickers, vice president of corporate social responsibility. “Waste reduction and sustainability are ingrained in our company culture and we strive to be a green company in every sense, encouraging sustainable efforts in both our professional endeavors and the personal lives of our employees.”
The City of Phoenix Green Business Leader certification program is designed to support sustainability in Phoenix and recognize local businesses dedicated to reducing waste and supporting other green initiatives with three levels of certifications. The program began through the Reimagine Phoenix initiative, which is the city’s public goal to increase its waste diversion rate to 40 percent by 2020. It’s also designed to assist the city in reaching its eight overarching 2050 Environmental Sustainability goals.
Alliance is placing a heavier focus on their waste reduction efforts throughout 2019 and kicked off the year with their first ever zero-waste event at their annual employee conference held in Scottsdale this February. They will also roll out a year-long campaign centered around reducing waste at their more than 450 properties across the country. This effort is in partnership with Waste Management, a comprehensive waste and environment services company serving North America.
