Commitment to Action

Urban Watershed Protection & Restoration in Development

Commitment by

Vulcan Inc.

In 2015, Vulcan Inc. and partners commit to piloting the nation’s first environmental accreditation program connecting real estate development practices to water quality protection and urban watershed recovery. Over three years, Vulcan will ensure that all Vulcan development projects in the Seattle region have net zero impact on the Puget Sound watershed by participating in an accreditation program developed by environmental certification organization Salmon-Safe that incorporates water protection principles into existing building retrofits and all new development projects. Salmon-Safe commits to engaging up to three additional developers that will also undertake accreditation in the same time period. Vulcan will create a best practices template, to be shared with these and other future developers that seek to manage their watershed impacts.
