Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) provider Balfour Beatty Communities recently announced it has been named a 2022 Motili Carbon Reduction Champion for reducing its emissions through targeted investments to make military communities for sustainable. The achievement was made possible through HVAC upgrades to more than 800 units across the company’s military housing portfolio.

Motili is contracted with Balfour Beatty Communities to provide routine HVAC maintenance, repair, and replacement work across their military housing installations. HVAC replacements can reduce energy use by nearly 25%, significantly reducing overall carbon emissions in privatized military housing units.

“Sustainability is a core value for Balfour Beatty Communities, driving our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in our communities and increase energy savings,” said Chuck Parker, Senior Vice President, Military Housing Management. “We are honored to be recognized for our efforts in this area and look forward to continuing our collaboration with Motili.”

Efforts to reduce carbon emissions by MHPI providers like Balfour Beatty Communities are made in concert with the Department of Defense’s (DoD) energy-saving goals.

MHA member companies are committed to meeting these goals by taking actions to promote sustainability and energy-use reduction, such as making significant investments in on-base solar power generation and energy efficiency upgrades.
