"Sequoia Living continuously looks at our communities and processes to evaluate the environmental impact of our business. We've taken action by creating our own electricity to reduce the dependency on the grid, we work with our partners on food waste and emissions reduction, and now we are installing solar panels on one of our communities to improve its efficiency," said Boudewyn.

With its initiative for sustainability and well-being, Sequoia Living is committed to being a great place to live and work. As an extension of its environmental stewardship, Sequoia Living continues efforts to reduce emissions by utilizing cogeneration technologies and producing 80% of the energy at The Sequoias San Francisco. Throughout the communities, Energy Star products are utilized, along with LED lighting products to improve efficiency.

"It is part of our mission to improve the quality of life for residents, reduce our buildings' impact on the environment, and create healthier and more resilient communities," said Boudewyn.
