Sustainability

As Chairman of the firm, John Buck has always expressed it is not enough to view a property or development by itself, but to consider its surrounding area and connection to the community. Adhering to this vision and as a US Green Building Council Member, JBC strives to design, construct and manage buildings that are environmentally responsible, successful and healthy places to live and work.

When it comes to efficiency of building systems and energy consumption, JBC is an industry leader in LEED® efforts and promoting energy efficiency in its management portfolio. Optimal operations and resultant reduced energy consumption are paramount in our practices.
All buildings participate in the Energy Star Program. Energy Star profiles are reviewed and updated quarterly. In addition, all JBC managed properties are benchmarked for electricity consumption through the EPA’s Energy Star program.
