We know that sustainability matters to our guests — and it’s important to us, too! Whether you’re staying in one of Blueground’s turnkey apartments for a month, a year, or longer, our homes are designed to help you maintain eco-conscious habits (and build new ones). Keep reading to see how we’re reducing our footprint and to discover some easy, practical ways you can help. 

What’s Blueground doing?

Since being founded in 2013, Blueground has taken steps toward environmental sustainability. Now, we’re establishing ourselves as an eco-conscious leader in the proptech space with the help of Iman Fardghassemi, our Sustainability Manager. Check out these green practices we’re currently carrying out:

💙 Following our internal energy efficiency policy

  • We’re practicing what we preach by training BeeGees (Blueground employees) and our cleaning crews to be energy efficient. This includes switching off lights and devices when not in use and using natural light as much as possible. 

💡 Using LED lightbulbs

  • Energy.gov explains that “Residential LEDs, especially Energy Star-rated products, use at least 75% less energy, and last up to 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.”

🏠 Providing sustainable home goods

  • Blueground guests in the US are greeted at their new home with a box of sustainable essentials from Public Goods — trash bags, hand soap, coffee, and more. 

☀️ Starting renewable energy projects

  • In Chicago, we’ve allocated over 200,000 kWh of electricity to community solar energy. Plus, we’ve sourced 382,000 kWh of electricity with renewable energy sources in Boston. 

🚗 Reducing daily travel of field employees

  • “This ensures that our employees aren’t driving back and forth across the city burning unnecessary emissions,” said Fardghassemi. 

While we plan to lessen our environmental impact further and have more exciting things planned for the near future, our current initiatives are already getting noticed. In fact, Blueground was shortlisted for the Best Sustainability Initiative at this year’s Altos Awards.
