The Brick Companies owns and operates a variety of businesses that are fundamentally connected through the socially conscious management and development of land. The company is purchasing a portion of its electricity use through green power for its corporate headquarters in Edgewater, MD. "Renewable energy is an integral part of attaining our strategic objective of building on our environmental stewardship through socially conscious management and development of land that enhances quality of life," says Lex Birney, CEO. In addition to its use of green power, the Brick Companies have undertaken a host of other environmental initiatives, including installing at its headquarters the first living roof in Anne Arundel County. The company feels that the biggest benefit of its commitment to green power is the staff's excitement about the direction the company is going, the good will its efforts have generated among its tenants, and the added pride in the knowledge that its actions directly benefit the environment, and specifically the Chesapeake Bay.
