A Commitment to Sustainability:

At EP, a commitment to sustainability means more than having a handful of LEED buildings under your belt (which we do). It means challenging the accepted norms of how a building can perform. It means driving down EUI (energy use intensity) numbers because it’s the right thing to do for our client, and for the planet. It means raising the question about sustainability even when the client does not. It means looking at resilience and life-cycle costs and overall impact. It means creating our own energy dashboard which tracks a variety of energy metrics, including EUI and LPD (Lighting Power Density) on all projects that we energy model. You cannot improve what you don’t measure.

Our sustainability guiding principles hang directly off our company values of family, service, and trust:

• We will reduce consumption (FAMILY)

• We will implement sustainable, high-quality design solutions (SERVICE)

• We will share truthful expertise (TRUST)
