Environmental Stewardship

The people at Bluegreen Communities comprise a talented team of developers, planners, designers, customer service agents and more.

But, like you, we don’t define ourselves by our careers or job descriptions.
We are, first and foremost, parents and grandparents, neighbors and friends, ad citizens of the world. And because of that, we are concerned about the legacy we leave for future generations; after all, it’s our children and grandchildren who will benefit the most from changes we can make right now.

For more than 40 years, Bluegreen Communities has been committed to responsible land use, environmental protection, and the safekeeping and conservation of its communities through reasonable protective covenants to ensure that they can be enjoyed by generations to come.

That’s why Bluegreen is doing more than “talking green.” We are launching company-wide initiatives to expand upon the ideas of responsible land use and development that have long been a cornerstone of our business practices. We want to be the global leader in environmentally responsible land development.

A few examples of initiatives we have developed and supported, include:

  • Instituting lower-density land use plans. Old-school developers try to squeeze every inch of profit from a community, but open space reduces environmental stress (and make for a more beautiful community). A density of less than one building per acre just adds to the sense of space and peace.
  • Expensive shielding on streetlights to reduce upward light pollution
  • Water-saving technologies like Reclaimed Wastewater Irrigation to reducing our water usage
  • Recycling of aluminum, glass, and plastic—which may seem elemental, but is, sadly, a practice that is overlooked or ignored by many companies

Many American corporations complain about the added costs of energy-efficient plans like these, and while lobbyists fight to weaken environmental laws, we believe that this is an investment in our future and the quality of life for our children and generations to come. And, as a business decision, we know it makes our product more compelling when our landowners know we’re taking steps to protect their surroundings and create a sustainable community. For those reasons and many more, we will only continue to look for ways to strengthen our resolve toward green development in the months and years to come.
