Environmental Sustainability

Our homes not only impact our health, but the health of the world around us. SAHF and its members are committed to the health and sustainability of our planet and our communities by building and operating sustainable and resilient low carbon homes. As leading providers of affordable multifamily rental homes, we continually seek new ways to ensure the transition toward a low-carbon future is one that ensures equitable benefits to residents and our communities. We strive to reduce our environmental impact through supporting greater adoption of sustainability, resilience and low carbon practices, models, and solutions. These solutions empower affordable housing providers and residents to be part of the solution to climate change.
