About the ESG Webinar Series
An Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy is no longer just a nice-to-have but a necessity for the commercial real estate industry. However, there is still much uncertainty for businesses when it comes to establishing process, methodology, and fiscally responsible goals, especially around sustainability and resilience.
Bringing together the varied perspectives of engineering, sustainability, equity, institutional investor, and lender, this thought-leadership series will offer a 360° view of ESG and provide practical insights for CRE leaders to start making real progress toward their goals.

Session 1 of 3: Best Practices for Improving ESG Performance
Investors and stakeholders are demanding ESG policy and reporting transparency from asset owners, viewing ESG performance as a key factor in risk evaluation in the commercial real estate industry. As funds get tied to ESG, the goal is for properties to become more sustainable and resilient to climate change.
In this webinar, our panelists will provide actionable insights for owners and asset managers to measure and improve their ESG performance. Topics will include understanding the existing assets’ carbon footprint, finding opportunities for energy use reduction, and calculating ROI for capital intensive measures. This webinar is for asset owners and managers who are getting serious about achieving their ESG goals, and are looking for a sustainability and engineering perspective on getting there.
