ESG in CRE: Making the Business Case for Sustainability (eBook)

Perhaps you’re trying to keep up with investors’ demands for transparency into your sustainability performance, which has intensified over the past several years. Maybe you’re trying to keep up with the rapid growth of laws, regulations, and standards aimed at forcing businesses to reduce their carbon footprint. Or maybe you’re aiming to align with the evolving priorities of your key demographics, an important consideration for attracting and retaining both tenants and employees.

Whether it’s one of these reasons or a combination of them, it’s clear that your organization needs to recognize sustainability for what it is—a critical factor impacting the value of your buildings. But how do you develop a strategy that will actually have a significant impact? What do you need to know about your organization before understanding how you will move forward?

Our new eBook, ESG in CRE: Making the Business Case for Sustainability, was developed with Goby to break down the essential steps to developing a strategy that will fit your organization’s needs and priorities, including:

  1. Setting overall goals
  2. Creating a budget
  3. Evaluating opportunities
  4. Constructing an ESG framework
  5. Building a sustainability team
  6. Checking your progress
  7. Promoting your performance

Earlier this year, MIT Sloan Management Review released the results of a survey that found that 75% of executives at investment companies believe sustainability should be a factor when making investment decisions. The ability to show your organization's progress in sustainability is quickly becoming a competitive advantage.

The guidance in this eBook is based on years of experience partnering with large enterprises to develop successful strategies to manage energy in a way that improves both top- and bottom-line performance. To understand what your organization needs in order to take control of energy in a way that will have a significant impact, download our new eBook today.
