Sustainability

“We are committed to solutions that balance the health of our clients’ eco-system with the environmental realities that impact the environment”

Pristine Environments believes a cleaner environment is just as important as a clean and efficient workplace. Our commitment to the environment goes beyond corporate responsibility statements – it is rooted in the understanding that the built environment is the single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions—nearly 70% of all carbon emissions in the US.

“70% of all carbon emissions are contributed from the built environment”

We have a unique responsibility to foster a greater understanding of how our solutions can assist our clients and the community to increase energy efficiency and indoor air quality. No matter how sustainable a building may have been in its design and construction, it can only remain so if it is operated responsibly and maintained properly.

Pristine Environments utilizes sustainable solutions to assist our clients. As a facility expert we are able to add valuable knowledge around the requisite sustainable procedures, products, equipment, and training necessary to garner LEED certification. We can also aid you in the planning and construction phases of any new or retrofit projects in your facility. Our team bring the most value to your ongoing operations and maintenance of your property, by delivering best in class solutions in the areas of energymanagement, greencleaning and engineering.

Carbon Offsets for your Facility

In addition to our sustainable solutions, Pristine Environments offers a carbon offset program to further aide our clients in their sustainable goals. We have partnered with the world’s leading environmental stewardship organizations to save the rainforest and to preserve the world’s biodiversity. We have committed to save over 10,000,000 square meters of the rainforest, which is roughly 3.5X the size of Central Park in New York.
