Lease to Leaf 🌿 Celebrating Earth Day with Equity Residential

At Equity Residential, we’re passionate about sustainability and its integral role in creating exceptional apartment communities where people can live, work, and play. We recognize the immense influence the real estate industry holds in shaping our environment and we’re committed to making a positive impact every step of the way.

That’s why, to celebrate Earth Day this year, we’re thrilled to announce an exciting initiative with veritree, a platform that connects nature-based solutions with companies ready to lead the restorative economy: for every new lease and lease renewal signed in April across our nearly 300 communities, we’ll be planting a tree.

Why trees, you ask? Trees play a vital role in stabilizing ecosystems, preserving biodiversity, and supporting local climates. By leveraging veritree‘s blockchain technology for traceability and transparency, we’re ensuring that each tree planted makes a meaningful contribution to our planet’s health. Later this year, we’ll be sharing the results and impact of this initiative, showcasing the tangible difference we’re making together!
