Our engine for delivering exceptional living experiences for our residents, fiduciary excellence for our investors, and an exceptional work experience for our team.
At Berkshire, our goal is to optimize energy efficiency and water conservation while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste production for the multifamily equity properties participating in our BerkshireTHRIVE initiative. We are working to achieve this goal by monitoring consumption in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager®, purchasing efficient products and appliances, and employing operational best practices.1
We have established performance targets to monitor our progress. By 2025, we strive to achieve a 10% reduction in energy, greenhouse gas emissions, and water and a 30% waste diversion rate. Performance is measured from a 2015 baseline to the 2025 target.2
Sustainability by Numbers
We promote sustainable living in all of our communities through energy efficient housing, water conservation, recycling programs, eco-friendly transportation options and other opportunities that support our environmentally-conscious living philosophy.

Energy and greenhouse gas data includes a combination of whole building and common area electricity, natural gas, and fuel consumption. Water and waste data include whole-building consumption for nearly all properties.
