In pursuit of Green Hope’s goals of reducing consumption of natural resources, reducing waste, and creating healthier living environments, Mercy Housing has made four external commitments:
- We are part of Enterprise Community Partners’ call to action to “green up” the operations of Mercy Housing in every aspect of our work by 2020.
- We have pledged to reduce our energy and water consumption by 20 percent within 10 years as part of the Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future’s (SAHF’s) “Big Reach” initiative.
- We joined the Better Buildings Challenge, an initiative by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to reduce energy use by 20 percent over 10 years.
- We have pledged to install 300 megawatts (300 MW) capacity of renewable energy at Mercy Housing properties by 2020 as part of Renew300, the Federal Government’s renewable energy target.
