Sustainable Community Projects

Village at Griesbach’s Sustainability Initiatives

Griesbach is a community that practices sustainability in all aspects of development. We want to take care of the environment through our home building, amenity features, and daily living! Village at Griesbach has over 23% of the community’s land devoted to sustainable greenspaces.

Village at Griesbach’s Green Initiatives

In Village at Griesbach, all development plans require the preservation of mature trees and green spaces. In all development, mature trees either need to be saved or transplanted to other areas of the community. Not only does this beautify the community by ensuring there are full, large trees throughout, but it also helps our environment!

The community has committed to saving over 23% of land for the preservation and creation of parks, lakes, green spaces, and recreational fields.

This is far more than what is required by the City of Edmonton, meaning that Griesbach is one of the greenest communities around! We also have water recycling and retention policies that promote enhanced green space and park development with an implemented wetlands policy for waterfowl and animals.

When it comes to building houses, all of our builders follow built green standards to participate in the community, and we are registered Stage 8 in the LEED ND Gold program and received certification — Village at Griesbach is one of only three Canadian communities to achieve this world-class environmental status.

1. Plant wildflowers and other plants in your gardens to ensure that you’re feeding and attracting pollinators

2. Separate out your trash from recycling
