Our Goal is to Lessen Carbon Emissions – Marcus Hiles

Marcus Hiles’ duty towards the environment extends past the buildings he creates. His firm’s  tree-planting exercises have expanded the volume of trees even more than pre-improvement levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted a year prior deals with more than 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and toxins while releasing oxygen,” he states. Meanwhile, Hiles tries to conserve existing arboreal treasures, for instance, the numerous 100-year-old oak trees that grow in a recreational park next to one Western Rim site. Marcus Hiles sees natural protection as a win for both people and the planet. “Our goal is to minimize carbon emanations by more than 500,000 metric tons all through the next decade,” he says. “At the same time, we’ll have the capacity to deliver savings for our tenants and make more flourishing communities.”

Marcus Hiles’ environmental initiatives extend well beyond the doors of the communities he builds. Western Rim Property Services follows an ambitious tree-planting initiative to increase the volume of a subdivision’s tree canopy to above pre-development levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted last year sequesters over 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and pollutants while releasing oxygen,” Hiles notes. The company also works to protect existing arboreal features such as the grove of 100-year-old oak trees thriving in a designed park adjacent to a Western Rim site. According to Marcus Hiles, environmental responsibility is a win for both community members and the planet. “Our bold goal is to lessen carbon emissions by more than 500,000 metric tons over the next decade,” he says. “In the process, we’ll deliver energy savings to our residents and create sustainable, livable communities.”
