From the beginning, Ward Village has been defined by its approach to sustainability. Today, community well-being remains our top priority throughout the neighborhood, as we continue our ongoing efforts to reduce energy, water, waste, and carbon emissions, improve indoor environmental quality, obtain green building certifications and more.

Our commitment to creating a vibrant and sustainable destination is guided by Howard Hughesʼ principles of expert placemaking and stewardship. As Ward Village continues to grow and flourish, so, too, does our dedication to green innovation and sustainable land-use planning on Oʻahu, establishing a neighborhood that creates value and well-being for generations to come.
