One of the core philosophies of Marcus Hiles, a commended Texas real estate developer, is environmental conservation. For him, it is an obligation to develop communities that are filled with nature and contribute to the effort of reducing humanity’s carbon footprint. Hiles’ love for the environment as Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services is reflected to over 15,000 high-class rental townhomes and apartments found in the Lone Star State. One of his building practices that focus on the welfare of the environment is installing appliances that have an ENERGY STAR seal provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Since the 1992 launching of this program, the application of ENERGY STAR in the U.S. has resulted to the reduction of 283.2 million metric tons in carbon dioxide emissions. Approximately 50 percent has been reduced in the annual utility costs of the ordinary Texan, which are $1650 for electric bills and $400 for natural gas.
