​​​​CAI supports environmental and energy efficiency policies that recognize and respect the governance and contractual obligations of community association residents as the best mechanism to enact sustainable environmental policies.

CAI supports efforts by state legislatures to empower community associations to build consensus-based solutions regarding environmental initiatives, and opposes government and interest group efforts to override community policy or deed restrictions on single interest issues.​
