Sustainable + Responsible
We believe that high-performing green buildings are not just good for the environment; they create economic value for our tenants, stockholders and employees.
Our portfolio of high-quality and environmentally-designed properties are among the best managed and environmentally friendly in the industry. We take great pride in having among the highest percentage of BOMA 360 designated buildings of any major U.S. REIT, and our environmental record boasts 33 Energy Star-rated buildings with an overall 17% reduction in energy consumption over the past five years. Twelve of our properties are LEED certified, with nine Gold and three Silver designations, and we were recognized in the top quartile of all North American respondents in the 2015 Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark for the second year in a row.
We consistently aim to improve energy and resource efficiencies to reduce operating costs through recycling, lighting retrofit programs, green housekeeping practices, energy optimization projects, and much more. Best of all, our social responsibility commitment is frequently echoed by our tenants, who also seek to incorporate healthy and sustainable best practices into their standard business operations.
Together, we are proud of the accomplishments we have made, and we remain committed to a sustainable and responsible path for the future.
