Sustainable Real Estate Development
Sustainability is a pillar of the Salt Palm approach – we incorporate a litany of elements and practices to reduce our carbon footprint and that which we cannot reduce, we offset to ensure our developments are carbon neutral. Additionally, Salt Palm is an active member with 1% For The Planet, Solar United Neighbors, American Sustainable Business Council, Conscious Capitalism, Florida For Good, and a CSR Member of IDEAS for Us. We have a commitment to purchase core products (at least 50% of non-labor expenses) from independent suppliers local to where the product will be used or where we operate.
We’re also committed to solar on 100% of our new developments. Sabal Smart Homes is fully solar-ready and our newest development, The Royal, will be solar-ready too.
From environmental responsibility to substantial cost saving, here are just 10 reasons that solar is powering more and more of our communities and planet.
More solar resources:
With the solar option, each Sabal Smart and Royal home will eliminate carbon dioxide equal to:
• Planting 3,285 trees
• 282,000 auto miles or 14,382 gallons of gas
• Recycling 446 tons of waste instead of sending it to a landfill
• 137,393 pounds (68.7 tons) of coal burned
• And we help avoid use of 3,434,500 gallons of water by thermoelectric power plants
