Hacienda is the largest development of its kind in Northern California. Over 11 million square feet of existing, mixed-use, transit-oriented space is occupied by some 650 companies that locally employ approximately 18,000 people. Hacienda’s businesses represent the best and the brightest of contemporary corporate America. The project provides a home to everything from small offices to regional centers to large campuses for company headquarters. In addition, Hacienda also features homes to some 4,000 residents. Residential developments also provide a full spectrum of choices from stylish rental units to single family detached homes.
Since its inception over thirty years ago, Hacienda regularly advances activities that help accomplish a number of sustainability goals. Whether through water conservation, commute assistance, energy reduction, waste diversion or through the provision of resources and information to help companies within the development accomplish these and similar objectives, Hacienda works to advance best sustainability practices whenever and wherever possible.
“Operationally, Hacienda has advanced several initiatives to promote a sustainable workplace. These efforts start in the development’s management office where we have been recognized as a green business under the Alameda County Green Business Program. In addition to managing our business using a number of best practices required for this designation, we felt it was important to further demonstrate our commitment to these efforts by supporting Carbonfund.org. We believe that Carbonfund.org’s mission clearly aligns with our objectives and we have encouraged other businesses within our development to likewise consider Carbonfund.org as a component of their own sustainability strategy.” – James Paxson, General Manager
