Rising energy prices and looming climate regulation are already creating new risks for the real estate sector. Now growing public concern over global warming is creating new expectations for action. By improving energy efficiency, the commercial real estate market can meet these expectations and reduce exposure to climate and energy risk profitably.
On Thursday, October 23 at 2 p.m. EDT, RiskMetrics Group and EPA Energy Star, will host a joint webcast that examines how to reduce the carbon footprint of real estate holdings while increasing asset value and net operating income. Speakers for this webcast include: Nicholas Stolatis, Director of Strategic Initiatives Asset Management at TIAA-CREF Global Real Estate; Mike Kent, Managing Director at RREEF North America; and Walt Tunnessen, Energy Star National Program Director at the US EPA. Doug Cogan, Head of Climate Change Research at RiskMetrics Group, will moderate the discussion.
Registrants will receive an electronic copy of the article, Investors Commit to Improving the Energy Performance of Real Estate Portfolios, which is in the October edition of EPA's Off the Charts newsletter. To register for the webcast, please visit here.
