Land Analysis, Management & Green Development
Appalachian helps companies "Go Green," by implementing efficiencies, improving sitting standards, and gaining both short- and long-term cost-saving measures that are appreciated as much by accountants as they are by local citizens and government regulators.
Only rarely is commercial enterprise viewed as necessarily competing with environmental values or community aesthetics. High-production industrial facilities, warehouses, commercial complexes, and even open-pit mines can have high-quality environmental aspects to them, if the intention exists. The most effective companies are those who are ahead of what is or will be required by government regulators or community desires. Such companies are often infused or vertically integrated with "Green" technologies and actions, capitalizing on the Reduce, Re-Use, and Recycle approach to streamlining and gaining efficiency. Examples include active and passive solar energy, wind energy, geothermal HVAC, super-insulation, landscaping for wildlife and people, creative and improved surface water management, pervious soil covers, etc. In Pennsylvania, many of these actions can count as valuable environmental credits, and Appalachian is the company best positioned to help.
