Green O&M

On-going practices to maintain and operate your properties are an important part of optimizing the benefits of a green building.

This page hosts information of particular relevance to property managers, maintenance supervisors, and others dealing with the routine operations of multifamily properties.

Bay Area LISC published a Green O&M Guide in 2009 that contains a toolkit for selecting green products, including paint, cleaning products, flooring and carpet, and lighting.


Enterprise Green Communities has resources for training O&M staff as well as residents. The resources include “Training in a Box” kits with Powerpoint slides and handouts.


Property management companies will soon be able to earn the widely recognized Green Business Certification in some counties. For more information, email
