We have both a responsibility and an opportunity to minimize environmental impact by influencing the way buildings are developed. TCC is a leader in making commercial real estate a more sustainable industry. With 35 LEED APs and more than 40 million square feet of LEED-certified projects completed, our company views sustainability as an intrinsic component of Class A development. At the same time, TCC is redefining and broadening sustainability to include economic impacts, wellness, social benefits, transportation and governance. The firm is committed to a comprehensive platform that captures the full benefits of a sustainable approach for both clients and the communities in which they build.
Sustainability is at the heart of our culture and definition of corporate responsibility. TCC embraces an evolved, proactive philosophy toward sustainability. The six components of our platform include:
LEED certification; measurement and management of GHG emissions; energy benchmarking and disclosure.
Community prosperity and reinvestment; employment retention and growth; education and technology; local business support.
Embracing healthy lifestyles; emphasis on nutrition and health; exercise and fitness opportunities; workplace balance and flexibility; fully integrated culture.
Connectivity and access to open space; diversity; arts and entertainment; safety and security assurances; community gathering spaces and beautification.
Connection to public transportation; alternative transit modes; rideshare/bikeshare and mobility; anticipation of autonomous vehicles and vehicle-sharing programs.
Political involvement; infrastructure, zoning and policy; community engagement and stewardship; responsible leadership.
TCC's sustainability professionals are engaged from the outset to source, shape and execute large-scale projects, from idea through entitlements through delivery. The Company applies these principles to all properties, regardless of whether or not they pursue LEED certification. Being intentional about the full scope of sustainability from the beginning makes the entitlement process smoother, expedites time to market and fosters long-term success.
