Each year, real estate owners and developers strive to find new ways to reduce energy, water, and waste across their portfolios to achieve ambitious environmental and financial goals.

How do they do it? What trends are driving these savings forward? How much is it increasing their NOI? In this one-hour webinar, senior leaders from the ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance will answer these questions.

They’ll speak to the sustainability projects that pushed their buildings to the next level, including the business case financials behind them. We’ll also look into specific market trends that ULI members are leveraging to get ahead of the competition: evolving utility partnerships, real estate investments in property technology, and expanding definitions

of sustainability.

This webinar is a deeper dive into findings made in the brand new ULI Greenprint Performance Report: Volume 9. As the largest global collection of transparent, verifiable, and comprehensive data about the environmental performance of buildings, this report provides aggregate benchmarks and performance trends for the real estate industry. Take a look before this webinar begins!
