Sun Communities, Inc. announced it had adopted goals to achieve Carbon Neutrality by 2035 and Net Zero Emissions by 2045. This promise is part of Sun's plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions significantly and reach net-zero emissions in the long run. This will help limit global warming and stop the adverse effects of climate change.

The scope of Sun’s commitment will be seen across all its properties as it works toward achieving its climate change goals through various means, including:

  • Renewable Energy – Expanding the use of renewable energy across its portfolio through additional on-site energy generation, the purchase of off-site generated energy and Renewable Energy Certificates

  • Green Building – Increasing the use of certified energy-efficient manufactured homes, including ENERGY STAR®, in its communities, as well as energy-efficient lighting and building control systems

  • Waste – Reducing total waste and increasing diversion from landfills by evaluating all disposal options locally available, including recycling, and adopting the best solution(s) at each property

  • Material Procurement – Partnering with its supply chain and consultants to collect emissions data on products and services

“It is incumbent upon Sun to play its role in combating the unfavourable impacts of climate change,” said Gary Shiffman, Chairman, CEO, and President. “We have an array of resources and knowledge available to support achieving our Carbon Neutral and Net Zero Emissions goals. We're sure we'll reach our goals if we work together across all of our projects to build our commitments into our daily tasks and workflows. This is a commitment to our residents, guests, team members, and communities that will benefit current and future generations.”
