Senior Living Communities
The Path to Net Zero

Key to SSAFE’s mission is to take action using science-based and professionally guided best practices, setting our own communities on the pathway to 50% greenhouse gas reductions by 2030 and carbon net neutrality by 2050. ‘Greening Our Campuses’ is the SSAFE project team responsible for guiding senior living communities on the path to Net Zero.

Below is a collection of work completed by Kendal residents. The completed projects below are organized by key areas of focus as it pertains to guiding senior living communities to Net Zero.
