CHR- Live Green

Start Living Green

For more than 35 years, Chestnut Hill Realty has been committed to responsible energy consumption and preserving the environment for future generations. In 2008, CHR announced the launch of a comprehensive green initiative targeting its existing properties. The ‘Live Green’ program is a multi-faceted effort targeting all CHR communities, its residents, and its employees.

From 2006 to 2013, CHR has reduced its carbon footprint a total of 3,476 metric tons of CO2. Around 545,000 therms of energy have been conserved by replacing older inefficient equipment and improving efficiencies throughout the portfolio of apartment communities. This is equivalent to taking 724 passenger vehicles off the road!
