Sustainability

Macerich recognizes the importance of environmental and social considerations in conducting our business.  We strive to conduct our business in a socially responsible manner that balances consideration of environmental and social issues with creating long term value for our Company and our stockholders.  Macerich is committed to improving its natural resource efficiency and demonstrating that the operation and development of its properties can be conducted in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.  Consideration of these issues is an ongoing part of operations, whether it relates to our offices or centers.

Macerich has already achieved many benefits through our concerted environmental efforts as outlined in our Sustainability Report.  Click here to view a copy of our Sustainability Report. In our Sustainability Report we are pleased to share details of Macerich’s company-wide efforts to operate in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.  Sustainability has become a guiding principle that is integrated throughout our organization and become part of our corporate culture.  Macerich’s Sustainability Program began in 2008 and since that time comprehensive efforts have focused on our people, our properties and our processes.  In this Sustainability Report you will learn about our efforts in four key focus areas and specific programs for the following:

•    Renewable Energy
•    Energy Management & Operational Efficiencies
•    Sustainable Developments and Redevelopments
•    Recycling and Solid Waste Management
•    Water Conservation Transportation and Parking
•    Solar Program

Our success to date has shown that environmental and financial goals are not mutually exclusive. Recently, we elevated our efforts and are in the process of installing  solar panels at 11 properties in Arizona, California, Colorado Connecticut and New York. These solar installations are part of our new partnership with Panasonic Eco Solutions North America that is designed to yield an estimated 10MW of clean energy, enough to power approximately 10,000 homes.  Centers participating in this solar initiative are:  Panorama Mall, Los Cerritos Center, The Oaks, Lakewood Center, FlatIron Crossing, Fresno Fashion Fair, SanTan Village, Queens Center, Danbury Fair Mall, Inland Center, and Twenty Ninth Street.

Macerich is committed to generating real savings and environmental impacts that enhance our position in our communities and with our stockholders and partners across the industry.  Through this commitment, we look forward to increasing the benefits for Macerich and the environment in the years ahead.

What We’re Doing at The Oaks
  • In 2014, the center is installing 6,131 solar panels that will produce 1,594kw of power. That is enough energy saved to power 222 homes for one year! 
  • Our Security Staff uses Global Electric Motorcars and Segways often in lieu of vehicles powered by gas, thereby reducing the use (gas) of one mobile vehicle by approximately 20 percent.
  • Many of our retailers now offer shoppers the option of reusable bags.
  • We use green cleaning products at our center wherever and whenever possible.
  • The center has implemented new lighting protocols that allow us to minimize our energy use and lower our carbon footprint without any impact on the shopping experience.
  • Our center has a recently upgraded HVAC system that minimizes our energy usage and lowers our carbon footprint.
  • Recycling bins are located throughout the property for both guests and retailers to separate paper, plastic and glass from trash.
  • More than 800 tons of cardboard is recycled each year from cardboard boxes and other shipping materials.
  • Printer toners and ink cartridges are recycled and sent to Hero Appreciation Network (HAN), which receives a $2 donation for each cartridge received.
  • Furniture and fixtures are refinished or redeployed to charities and other organizations whenever possible.
  • Outdated promotional materials are recycled with our local printer and reused whenever possible.
  • The center’s Management Office now uses filtered water in favor of bottled water.
  • Thermostats in the mall offices have been regulated to save energy while still providing a comfortable environment.
