AMLI Residential

Sustainability

AMLI builds green, healthy apartment communities from the ground up. As a leader in multifamily LEED® and ENERGY STAR® certifications, AMLI offers environmentally responsible homes. Our communities use land, water and energy more efficiently. We work hard to provide clean-air initiatives and lifestyle amenities that allow residents to live more sustainably every day. AMLI also works to educate, engage and empower our residents to do the same.

AMLI's ambitious environmental goals drive efficient resource use at our communities and reduce our carbon footprint. For more details, view our Corporate Responsibility Report above. (*denotes for community common areas)

A community’s sustainable features help provide a healthier and more efficient home, resident savings and a low impact lifestyle.
SUSTAINABILITY CERTIFICATIONS

AMLI’s new developments meet or exceed LEED Silver and seek ENERGY STAR certification. AMLI Ponce Park was the first multifamily community in the southeast to achieve Fitwel certification.

SOLAR & RENEWABLE ENERGY

Rooftop solar panels power shared resident spaces at four communities in Dallas. Common areas at AMLI’s Dallas communities are powered by 100% renewable energy.

WATER CONSERVATION

Features like WaterSense fixtures, smart irrigation systems and native, adaptive landscaping help AMLI reduce water usage in community common areas and inside residents’ homes.

HEALTH & WELLNESS

We utilize low/no VOC emitting materials such as paint, carpet and flooring. Our LEED certified communities also include fresh air ventilation and premium air filters. Offering fitness centers and other wellness-focused amenities promotes a healthy lifestyle for our residents.

GREEN MOBILITY

Many AMLI communities are located within walking distance to neighborhood amenities and public transportation. Features like electric car charging stations, and bicycle storage and repair shops are another way we support lower carbon transit.

SAVING THE BEES, BUTTERFLIES & BIRDS

Select AMLI communities work with local partners to incorporate landscaping that helps pollinators connect and thrive.

RECYCLING & COMPOSTING

AMLI offers recycling to our residents throughout the country and composting at Seattle and select Denver communities.

AMLI’s Green Home Guides provide our residents with basic information about the special features of their LEED certified apartment home. We want residents to have a keen understanding of their home’s green features, save money on utilities, reduce their environmental footprint, and keep their home healthy.

Green home guides by region

AMLI educates and trains our onsite teams to be a good resource for our residents. Additionally, our communities facilitate resident events that connect them with green experts to learn more about living a greener lifestyle.

Many of our volunteer activities are sustainably focused because protecting our planet is one of the most important ways we can give back. Whether it's building a park or organizing a beach clean-up, we are committed to being a responsible steward of our environment. Learn more about how AMLI Gives back to our greater communities.
