In recent years, the appetite for tracking and prioritizing ESG factors in commercial real estate has exploded. With buildings in the US accounting for 71% of electricity consumption, 39% of carbon emissions, 65% of waste output, and 12% of water consumption, corporate real estate teams are key to ESG goal achievement. Corporate real estate is not only driving value on the environmental side but also the social side. This panel draws on the experience of leaders from Otis, Pepsi, and Adobe to discuss practical best practices and approaches for four ESG focus areas: • Resource conservation • Climate adaptation/risk mitigation • Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging • Health and wellbeing 

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify how corporate ESG priorities influence CRE strategies, and how CRE can support ambitious ESG outcomes.

  • Discover best practices from leaders whose businesses are focused on each of the four pillars: - Resource conservation • Climate adaptation/risk mitigation • Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging • Health and wellbeing.

  • Develop metrics to demonstrate how CRE helps your organization achieve its ambitious ESG.goals.
