Not only are Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty agents Asheville’s green real estate experts, but Mosaic was built on a solid foundation of sustainability and environmental values. The first real estate agency in North Carolina to obtain a carbon neutral status, Mosaic continues its mission to support local solutions to climate change by having a long tradition of partnerships with such area environmental organizations as Asheville GreenWorks, MountainTrue and Green Built Alliance.
Action across Asheville
From its inception, Mosaic has operated on the triple-bottom-line principle of People, Planet and Profit, measuring success based on those categories. Taking action on a local level with partnerships like the one it has with Appalachian Offsets – a Green Built Alliance program aimed at helping individuals and businesses offset their carbon footprint – allows Mosaic to address head-on one of the greatest threats to our planet, climate change.
A recent installation of solar panels at Isaac Dickson Elementary School, led by Appalachian Offsets, is just one such project Mosaic has helped to underwrite. More environmental projects partially funded by Mosaic in partnership with Appalachian Offsets are coming down the pipeline later this year.
Achieving carbon neutrality
To reach carbon neutrality, an individual or business must achieve a state in which the net amount of carbon dioxide is reduced to zero because it is balanced by action to reduce or offset these emissions. In order to participate in Appalachian Offsets, all of Mosaic’s agents have committed to paying a yearly sum reflective of their part of carbon emissions for the company. The funds collected benefit a local nonprofit, school or affordable-housing provider needing an energy-efficiency upgrade.
In addition, to help Asheville become a carbon neutral community, Mosaic agents working with buyers connect their clients to services for home energy efficiency improvements. Connecting new residents to some of the area’s invaluable resources and programs is an ideal introduction into Asheville’s environmentally aware community.
