1 Project site conditions and development requirements, as well as factors outside of our control, can restrict our ability to build ENERGY STAR certified homes in certain communities.

2Began tracking in 2008.

3Began tracking in 2010, from a 12-month post-closing survey on a scale of 0–100% satisfaction.

4Construction commenced in late 2010.

5Las Vegas market only; in conjunction with the Southern Nevada Water Authority.

62012–2018 figures are estimated.

7Began tracking in 2009. Optional upgrades include appliances, HVAC equipment, WaterSense labeled fixtures, ENERGY STAR certified doors and low-E windows. Figures are estimated.

8 From time to time, we purchase land that may include areas designated by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as special flood hazard areas (SFHA). Typically, we work with FEMA to prepare studies, grade the land and install necessary drainage facilities to obtain a LOMR (letter of map revision) and an update to the FIRM (flood insurance rate map) to remove the property from a flood plain before we move on to the next phase of community development.

1 Began tracking in 2008. iLab was a virtual meeting system that minimizes air and car travel for training, meetings and events. It was discontinued in 2017, in favor of cloud-based services.

2 This service provider also calculated the environmental benefits in the related rows below. This figure does not include the recycling programs we have established in the majority of our local offices. Increase in 2010 was primarily due to our Northern California division recycling over 11,500 boxes of archived documents in 2010. Division reduced their document storage by 50% to cut costs and improve efficiency.
