Green Building Initiatives

Hines and 321 North Clark are committed to improving our building’s environmental impact. 321 North Clark has been Energy Star certified since 2007 and has maintained LEED Gold status since 2011.  Additional building recycling initiatives include light bulb recycling, mercury reduction through non-mercury or low mercury lamp purchasing, and landscape waste composting. The building seeks to use the most sustainable options in green cleaning; including using green friendly paper products such as recycled content and coreless toilet paper and 60% recycled fiber paper towels.
