Victory Housing recently joined the Better Climate Challenge in which participating organizations set aspirational goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and share resources on their respective climate action efforts. Reducing GHG emissions is a significant challenge, and Victory Housing is proud to partner with DOE and HUD in its pledge to reduce GHG emissions by 50% and energy consumption by 20% over the next ten years.

Victory Housing is committed to promoting environmental sustainability and resilience across its portfolio through various actions. Victory Housing has completed five LEED-certified projects since 2018 and has installed solar panels in five communities in 2019. In 2023, Victory Housing has taken the next step in these efforts by prioritizing sustainability in new construction, planning for installation of solar panels that will benefit an additional 18 communities, and benchmarking energy usage across the entire portfolio.

Victory Housing is committed to promoting environmental sustainability and resiliency for its portfolio through actions in new construction, capital improvements, and ongoing operations. Victory Housing will:

  • Aim to achieve LEED Gold certification, equivalent or better, for new construction, which continues the process started in 2018.
  • Achieve Net Zero Emissions for the properties over time. As funding allows, we will replace any inefficient equipment ahead of the regular replacement schedule. Additionally, we plan to incorporate the highest efficiency equipment for all scheduled upgrades and electrify all significant systems to reduce on-site emissions. Victory Housing will also build climate resiliency into all renovations.
  • In ongoing operations, Victory Housing plans to operate on 100% renewable energy by installing solar arrays in every community where feasible and purchasing green energy for all power procured from the grid, and to improve energy and water efficiency through proactively installing LED lighting and low flow faucets and fixtures, insulating buildings, and using ENERGY STAR appliances.

Where We Are Today

To date, Victory Housing now owns and oversees 37 communities providing 2,812 units of rental housing. Six of these communities are Assisted Living residences which Victory Housing directly manages. Virtually all of our communities have received local, regional or national accolades for innovation, design and service, and we are committed to continuing to deliver these results.
