Increase the value of real estate through responsible development, management, and capital improvements.
We recognize that our assets and business practices have an impact on the natural environment. We share a responsibility with our property managers, tenants, and communities to make balanced, responsible decisions that create value for our environment, our society, and our business.
In order to meet this objective, we focus on the following strategies:
- Reduce the energy and water consumption of our assets by partnering with our third party operators to effectively monitor and manage consumption, evaluate opportunities through audits, and target cost-effective retrofits.
- Utilize a data management system to track, analyze, and report the resource use at our assets.
- Invest in renewable energy projects at our assets to reduce risk of increasing energy prices and support clean energy development.
- Minimize the environmental impact of our assets by evaluating design and construction practices and prioritize third-party certified properties during acquisition, new development, and/or existing building operations.
