Western rim properties not only about property management

  1. 1. Western Rim Properties Not Only About Property Management
  2. 2. As the chairman and CEO of the Texas based company Western Rim Properties Marcus Hiles has a considerable influence on social and environment issues. With this in mind Marcus has realised that the plight of the environment and the worlds trend towards 4 degrees of global warming is a serious threat to the planet and its population. In his role as a property developer he can also play a crucial role in doing his bit for the planet by planting trees and help the planet at a local level as well as an international level.
  3. 3. Hundreds of acres of parkland and green spaces in the suburbs of Houston, Austin and San Antonio in Texas have been created thanks to Marcus. Planting trees obviously has an aesthetic advantage although it has a more critical role in helping his business community and that of the wider community.
  4. 4. Marcus D Hiles`Environmental causes have donated parks, lakes, streams and green spaces which are estimates to be worth four million dollars. This giving of rehabilitated land has surely helped the local community and helps the broader Texas community to reap the benefits of the land.
  5. 5. Marcus`companies are proud of the fact that they plant trees at a rate far greater than any government department in the States. Hiles explains “Trees improve air quality, lower greenhouse emissions and air pollution. They also store and sequester carbon dioxide”.
  6. 6. This is because when trees are planted close to buildings they help to provide shading and therefore reduce the need for air conditioning units and therefore they assist to reduce the amount of electricity that is needed in the office environment. This is a serious issue is Texas, a state that enjoys a very high amount of sunlight for the majority of the year. Which means that companies operating in that area need to pay on average higher electricity bills than those situated in the Northern States.
