Long Realty Company Goes Green
Posted by Georgia R. Lacy — August 19, 2011
(Tucson, AZ.) Long Realty Company is pleased to announce new initiatives the company is taking to “go green”.
First, the company has launched a new section of their website, at www.longrealty.com/gogreen, as an online ‘green’ resource for consumers. This area of the website will feature a search engine to find properties that have green features, as well as finding Long Realty agents that are green certified. This area of the website will also provide consumer tips for sustainability, energy efficiency and other green subject matters.
“Long Realty has been part of Southern Arizona for 85 years. It is important that we support environmental sustainability and the future of our community. Step by step, we hope to provide our customers with the most environmentally-friendly opportunities to positively impact future generations,” said Kevin Kaplan, Long Realty Vice President of Marketing and Technology.
Long Realty is also working on additional ways to create a green-friendly work environment. The company has formed a ‘Green Group’, comprised of Long Realty agents and management, which meets on a regular basis to evaluate and discuss green initiatives for the company. The company is moving to an online document storage system, significantly reducing paper storage and consumption while at the same time evaluating their operations to find opportunities for further green efficiencies and sustainability. Long Realty has also joined the Southern Arizona Green Chamber of Commerce to get involved with the community’s green efforts.
