Our goal is to divert 25% of our landfill waste to recycling by the end of 2022. A higher diversion rate is great for the environment and it lowers our refuse bill – a savings that’s ultimately passed back to you. Kilroy Centre Del Mar is currently at an 21% diversion rate, so we’ll need everyone’s participation to boost that up to 25%!
Kilroy Realty has always used the most advanced green cleaning products and practices in all of our buildings. We are constantly searching for the latest information on green cleaning and update our cleaning services whenever we see an opportunity to further minimize the environmental impact of our custodial practices. Kilroy Centre Del Mar has an excellent Green Cleaning program.
Kilroy Realty understands the significant role material selection plays in the operation of a sustainable building. Throughout a material’s lifecycle, extraction, processing, transportation, use & disposal, there are many negative health & environmental consequences. Environmentally responsible purchasing can significantly reduce that impact.
LEED EB: OM Certification
Kilroy Centre Del Mar is on track to achieve LEED® Certification under the Existing Building: Operations & Maintenance rating system by Q4 of 2022. This certification means we’ve made a commitment to maintaining excellence in our building operations. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system that evaluates the design, construction, and operation of green buildings. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED buildings provide value for tenants because they perform approximately 25% better than average in terms of energy and water consumption. This translates into cost savings on utility bills and equipment repairs, among other benefits.
