Green Initiatives

The Carbon Companies is dedicated to taking advantage of every opportunity to incorporate environmentally sensitive operating and construction processes. We strive to create projects that promote an “Eco-Friendly Lifestyle.”

Carbon is mindful of its material consumption and implements recycling programs in its corporate office, on construction sites, and for residents. We’ve also converted to digital delivery of plans and specs for most of our projects, saving large quantities of paper. For many years, we have been mindful of rising energy costs and build units with cost effective measures intended to reduce energy consumption for tenants and operators.  Penrose Square in Arlington, VA achieved LEED Silver status and Landmark on Lovers in Dallas will achieve LEED Certified status along with satisfying all requirements of the City of Dallas Green Building Program.
