Global Real Estate Industry Boosts Performance

 
Global real estate becomes more energy efficient.

New findings suggest that the global real estate industry is continuing to make progress in improving the environmental performance of existing buildings, according to a new report published by the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Greenprint Center for Building Performance.

Volume 4 of the Greenprint Performance Report™, which measures and tracks the performance of 3,232 buildings owned by Greenprint’s members, demonstrates a year-over-year reduction of 3.2 percent in energy consumption and 3.4 percent in carbon emissions. Other findings of the report include:

  • The reduction in carbon emissions equates to nearly 268,400 barrels of oil not consumed, 24,044 cars taken off the road, and over 2.9 million trees planted in the past 12 months.
  • 21.4-percent increase in recycling.
  • Modest 0.5-percent increase in water consumption.

The property data was submitted to the Greenprint Center by its 31 members and affiliated partners, who are committed to improving environmental performance across the global property industry.

The full report is available from the Urban Land Institute.
