Wesley Woods Recognized for Sustainablilty Efforts


ATLANTA – The Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge recognized Wesley Woods Senior Living for reaching a milestone achievement in sustainability. Asbury Harris Epworth Towers and Branan Towers were two of just 20 Atlanta properties to complete their Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge goal in 2013.

Atlanta BBC participants work to realize a 20 percent reduction in energy and water consumption in commercial properties by or before 2020. Wesley Woods Senior Living is among the first Atlanta BBC participants to achieve this goal within less than two years of the program’s launch.

“We commend and congratulate Wesley Woods Senior Living for taking this important step to improve Atlanta’s energy and water efficiency,” said Lauren Dufort, Director of Sustainability at Central Atlanta Progress.

“The City of Atlanta applauds Wesley Woods in its efforts to make our city a more sustainable place to live and conduct business,” said Denise Quarles, Director, City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Sustainability. “Their hard work is just the beginning, and we are glad that they paved the way for other Atlanta BBC participants.”

Wesley Woods Senior Living was formally recognized in a ceremony held July 16 at Hudson Grille Midtown.
