Sustainability

Macerich is sharply focused on sustainability as a long-term, fully integrated business approach. Our goal is simple: Create a healthy environment for our employees, tenants, guests and communities and sustain this environment for future generations.

Today we are committed to doing even more — to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, water consumption, and waste generation by 10 percent by 2020.  For more information click here.


What We’re Doing at Desert Sky Mall
  • Many of our retailers now offer shoppers the option of reusable bags.
  • We use green cleaning products at our center wherever and whenever possible.
  • The center has implemented new lighting protocols that allow us to minimize our energy use and lower our carbon footprint without any impact on the shopping experience.
  • We use a Reverse Osmosis Water Filtering System in the management office instead of bottled water.
  • All of our center’s cardboard is taken to a recycling facility.
  • We communicate “Green Tips” to all of our retailers on a weekly memo.
  • Light sensors were installed throughout the management office to reduce energy usage.
  • Our mall lighting is controlled by an Energy Management System that turns lights on or off based on lighting intensity.
