Our Own Operations
In our workplaces, we are studying how to minimize our carbon footprint when planning office renovations and intend to focus our attention in the near term on methods reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, increasing use of renewable energy, conserving water and reducing waste generation.
Newmark occupies over a dozen buildings that are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certified (LEED) Certified and over 30 that are ENERGY STAR Certified. For example, our New York City Headquarters at 125 Park Ave. is in a building that has received U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold certification and is also ENERGY STAR Certified.
We have a policy with respect to the responsible environmental management of our operations. We are creating a baseline to understand and minimize the impact that our business has on the environment and have begun to actively search for ways to reduce our footprint. In order to achieve our environmental goals, we are pursuing traditional, as well as new and innovative, methods. More broadly, we are seeking to create a culture where environmental focus is a way of being rather than a secondary consideration.
