Lower Emissions, Higher Returns: The Importance of Environmental Reporting in Real Estate Investing

September 15, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

By Linda Seggelke

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are increasingly incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their asset analyses. What’s more, studies have shown a strong correlation between firms that report these non-financial factors and the profitability of property owners and operators.

Real estate plays a pivotal role in determining public and environmental health. In the United States, commercial and residential real estate accounts for around 40% of both total electricity use (or roughly 39 quadrillion Btus) and carbon emissions. More and more, investors consider these risk factors. As a result, they are seeking better reporting of the ESG performance of their investments.

Performance-Based Procurement: Infusing Your Design-Build Contract with Energy Requirements

July 14, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

By Matt Baker

Innovation is a crucial part of the green building movement. Year after year, renewables come down in price, mechanical systems become more efficient and the stock of sustainably sourced materials grows more diverse. Without these technological advancements, the share of the construction sector devoted to sustainability would likely equal that of yak skin yurts.

So, what if you apply that innovative thinking to other aspects of the design-build environment? That’s the idea behind a new trend: performance-based procurement. First developed by the Colorado-based National Renewable Energy Laboratory, performance-based procurement is an approach that sets into motion higher energy efficiency in a building before a shovel ever meets dirt.
