We make decisions with an awareness of how our actions impact the earth. Our activities flow from our deep connection with and responsibility to the natural world, in recognition that it is not separate from us. We commit to environmental stewardship built on clear, measurable objectives and outcomes.

Sustainability as a Guiding Principle

The Board launched this project some 5 years ago. They declared that sustainability has been integral to the comfort and health of our residents through our choice of construction materials, building standards, and, most importantly, the way we will live within Enso Village.

Embracing the urgent responsibility to reduce emissions, experimenting with capture technology, optimizing demand timing, and exploring other strategies reflects our dedication to Enso Village’s foundational values and our Mission.

The sustainability journey of Enso Village covers three phases:


  • Building in accordance with strict guidance associated with the California Green Bonds
  • Diverting waste from the landfill
  • Carefully managing and filtering water run-off
  • Removing all “red-listed” products from the materials list
