Notable GHG Reduction and Sustainability Projects:
Sustainable Building Additions: Enviro-Stewards began harvesting rainwater, as well as reducing potable water consumption and storm water runoff. They also installed a living wall which was connected to their return air duct, allowing a reduction in heating and cooling of air coming from outdoors. A green bin system was also introduced in order to improve waste diversion.
HVAC: Installed a high efficiency air-handling unit that routes air through Enviro-Stewards’ living wall, creating a reduction in both air heating & cooling requirements for the building.
Low- E Windows: Replaced 100 ft. of single pane windows with efficient low-e windows. The replaced windows were reused in office expansion to provide light to internal offices.
Lighting: During their office expansion, Enviro Stewards implemented LED lighting utilizing occupancy sensors and daylight controls throughout the new office space.

Enviro-Stewards is planning to avoid 500 tonnes of GHG emissions for every tonne of GHG generated by their operations. To accomplish this they will reduce their emissions per employee by 80% and help their clients avoid at least 20,000 tonnes of GHG emissions a year.
