A Pioneer In Sustainable Development

The Irvine Company® has been a pioneer in sustainable development with environmental stewardship at the core since the company's founding in 1864. And, when the company made the historic decision to master plan The Irvine Ranch® in the late 1950s, environmental stewardship was an inseparable component of that process.

Today our commitment to environmental stewardship is stronger than ever. Our teams of dedicated specialists take great pride in managing and caring for the environmental impact of our portfolio through water, energy and waste conservation and achieve significant savings across our entire portfolio.

Balancing Community With Environment

Our efforts range from the everyday—installing high-efficiency plumbing at hundreds of our properties—to the grand—preservation of more than 50,000 acres of open space and parks.

We continually seek ways to balance community needs with those of the environment, not only across The Irvine Ranch® but throughout the company’s entire portfolio of office, apartment, retail and resort holdings in Orange County, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Silicon Valley.
