A Day of Giving
Diesslin Group, Inc. recognizes the importance of community involvement and encourages employees to participate in volunteer activities by providing paid leave opportunities. Full-time employees who perform community service are granted up to one full day with pay per calendar year to pursue volunteering with a charity of their choice.
Socially Responsible Energy Consumption
Diesslin Group, Inc.’s offices are located in the newly constructed Westbrook building, overlooking the Sundance Square Plaza. This uniquely designed six-story building is named after the historic Westbrook Hotel, which was one of Fort Worth’s grandest during the city’s oil boom of the 1900s. We are thrilled to call a LEED-certified office building our new home.
Renewable and Sustainable
LEED certification is a rigorous standard in developing real estate using sustainable and environmentally friendly measures, and our building is recognized for meeting best-in-class environmental standards and practices. LEED-certified buildings reduce the use of our limited natural resources by using renewable and sustainable practices where possible. These standards also have a positive impact on our team members and our visiting clients. For example, the high-quality air filters in our office remove more airborne particles than traditional air filters and reduce allergens, improving air quality.
Cost-Saving and Energy-Efficient
Our office lighting includes a substantial number of LED light fixtures, which offer cost-saving capabilities over the long term as well as benefiting both humans and the environment. Traditional fluorescent lights contain materials that are toxic to humans, including mercury, and require time and resources to dispose of properly. LED lights are also much more energy efficient than fluorescent lights, helping us decrease the amount of electricity we require to operate and reduce our environmental “footprint.”
Reduced Water Usage
Our building also takes advantage of tankless water heaters, which heat water on demand and do not waste energy maintaining a constant supply of hot water, as traditional tank water heaters do. Additionally, LEED buildings are designed to minimize both indoor and outdoor water usage so that we are able to minimize any unnecessary use of fresh water. We are proud to be part of the worldwide movement to preserve our limited natural resources while improving the quality of life for both our employees and our clients.
