Greystar Green Awards - Overview
What are the Greystar Green Awards?
Twice a year (during April for Earth Day and during Greystar's “Sustainable September” event), each
Greystar-managed community updates a survey to record the green initiatives it completed throughout
the year.
The survey is broken out into seven categories, and communities earn points based on their responses
within each category. When a community reaches the designated point level in every category, they
receive the Greystar Green Award designation, a distinguished plaque for their office, and a logo to use
on their website. They are also listed in the Greystar Find an Apartment search as a Greystar Green
Community.

What are the award categories?
The seven categories are described below.
Community

within the property to residents, creating community events, and
providing resources.

• Education points are earned by learning Greystar’s sustainability
policies, providing residents with conservation information,
following and promoting Greystar’s social media posts, and
incorporating sustainability topics in team meetings.
Energy Conservation

as replacements, installing energy saving devices in common
