Notable GHG Reduction and Sustainability Projects


Energy Efficiency: All of the buildings underwent a lighting retrofit and now have LED fixtures. A solar panel system was also installed to support the kitchen dishwasher.

Water Reduction Upgrades: The resident buildings at St. Jerome’s were upgraded with low-flow faucets and fixtures, as well as water-less urinals. Overflows were drained directly into the garden instead of the storm water management system which pours into Laurel Creek.
