2013 brings the opportunity for EAH to receive its first Green Point Rated Rehabilitation certification through Build it Green.
Enterprise Community Partners helps EAH build capacity and continue resident and staff conservation training with grants in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Staff and resident efforts bring attention to the beginning stages of the California drought and our collective need to save water. In 2013, residents participate in a portfolio-wide water conservation slogan contest. The winning slogan “Do your part, be water smart” is promoted in all common area bathrooms, laundry facilities and kitchens of EAH properties and offices.
At the end of 2013, green retrofits are completed on 40% of EAH communities, helping the organization meet its goals for the Better Buildings Challenge.
Capacity building efforts in 2013 launch utility data collection and tracking tools: EPA Portfolio Manager and later Wegowise, in 2014.
