Greenbuild – White Paper: The Social Equity of Sustainability

To make change within our cities and communities, we must provide sustainable solutions — building and otherwise — to all people equally. Awareness of sustainable living is widespread, but access to housing, jobs, resources, and education is often skewed to those who can best afford it.

In this whitepaper, we define:

  • The five core principles of social justice.
  • The eight specific and highly-actionable components of translating them into results.
  • Examples of how professionals are measuring the impact of their social justice initiatives.
  • Three powerful steps you can take immediately to ensure ALL people can be part of and benefit from the sustainable development imperative.

Our focus on hiring local community contractors keeps jobs in the local communities we serve, ranging from small plumbing and lighting/electrical contractors to more technologically advanced mechanical and controls contractors. Lillian Kamalay, Director of Business Development, Ameresco
