Ann Arbor Area Board of Realtors
Sustainable Business Practices
The Ann Arbor Area Board of Realtors is an association that includes over 850 REALTOR members and 150 affiliate members serving consumers throughout Washtenaw County. With over 85 years of service to the Real Estate Community, they provide consumer information as well as member benefits including education and networking opportunities. The office itself contains 10 employees who work diligently to improve their recycling efforts. There are three main collection areas for recycling in the office and many employees have their own individual recycling bins. The company reuses many office supplies and also purchases paper, garbage bags, toner cartridges, file folders and envelopes made from recycled content materials. They have an Environmental Concerns Committee that discusses and develops methods to improve current services and environmental awareness training seminars. The Ann Arbor Area Board of Realtors also provides an environmental manual related to real estate to all Broker offices within their Associates. They are also energy efficient because they use fluorescent lights within their office and enable ENERGY STAR features on their office equipment.
