Learn the details on how this team devised a sustainability strategy and sale-leaseback approach that significantly increased the project scope while dramatically reducing energy usage and overall occupancy cost. In 2014, Unilever unveiled 'Project Unify'-a plan to consolidate five of its North American offices and several of its operating groups into a single, state-of-the-art workplace. The new headquarters not only had to be modern, flexible, and conducive to employee health and well-being, but it also had to help the company reduce its carbon footprint by a staggering 50 percent while doubling its revenues-an ambitious goal outlined in Unilever's global Sustainable Living Plan. The end result was that Unilever was able to structure a transaction through creative financial engineering whereby the initial rent was increased whilst the operational costs going forward where reduced by 50%.
