Luck Companies’ Facilities Team supported the elimination of disposable water bottles at the Corporate Campus by installing pre-filtered water and ice dispensers that encourage the use of reusable water bottles. The team estimates that these water dispensers saved the office from needing to buy 14,976 disposable water bottles in 2016! In addition, Luck Companies’ Corporate Campus has been designed to capture all stormwater runoff (4,449,506 gallons in 2016!) from impervious surfaces. The runoff is channeled into a 2.7 acre attractive pond, where it is used to irrigate the entire campus. The Corporate Campus also removed impervious surfaces and maintains 5350 square feet of pervious pavers. Luck Companies’ Facilities Team saves energy at the Corporate Campus by utilizing automatic temperature controls on thermostats and timers or motion sensors on all lights, including those in parking lots. In an effort to conserve electricity, the Campus began to convert all lights to LED in 2016, saving 738.9 KWHr of electric power.

In 2016, Luck Companies hosted the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s Virginia Chesapeake Business Forum at the spectacular Corporate Campus, where participants were given the opportunity to learn all about the Campus’ green initiatives during an interactive tour.

Associates at Luck Companies also volunteer their time outside of work to help protect the environment. Each year, they conduct road-cleaning events for Virginia’s Adopt-a-Highway program and participate in the annual James River Cleanup.

Themes Fulfilled

Clean Water
Engaged Communities
Other Green Initiatives
Our first year of membership in the Businesses for the Bay program was a great step forward. We were able to host the Chesapeake Business Forum as well as focus on several goals that helped us to reduce our environmental impacts. We were rewarded with some significant savings on our bills for electricity and water. This year, we plan to continue these efforts and more as we look for new ways to save.
