THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Target Logistics, the largest turnkey workforce housing provider in the United States, has just released a white paper titled “Return on Sustainability: Workforce Housing for People, Planet and Profit” by Richard Rothaus..

“By addressing the triple bottom line of social responsibility, natural capital and economic prosperity, well organized workforce housing can be an important component of both short and long term business success,” Rothaus writes.

Workforce housing that’s professionally managed, according to Rothaus, can assist companies in recruiting and retaining skilled workers, as well as insulating workers from the daily life disruptions that are common in areas with insufficient or nonexistent infrastructure.

Reusable modular structures offer a green building solution for housing, and have built-in conservation and cost saving features. Rothaus explains, “By providing an independent and largely self-sufficient infrastructure, such accommodations can significantly reduce negative impacts on smaller communities caught up in rapid industrial development.”

The full white paper can be downloaded for free at TargetLogistics.net/white_papers.php

Target Logistics operates 16 properties in the North America housing some 5,000 oil, gas and mining workers. The company’s Canadian office is in Edmonton.
