Just how far have the concepts of green and sustainability reached within the commercial real estate industry? And what does it say when many of the industry’s major associations, owners, investors and developers of commercial property have committed to joining NREI’s Green Real Estate Strategies newsletter’s Sustainability Board of Advisors?

It literally says “billions and billions” because that’s how much square footage of real property these stakeholders represent throughout the United States and abroad. But it also says "trillions" in terms of what the green and sustainable asset base is worth when it comes down to dollars. 

We are extremely pleased to introduce our Sustainability Board of Advisors in this edition of Green Real Estate Strategies. Our board members represent a rapidly growing aspect of real estate. They are leading the way toward increasing ROI through sustainable practices, and they’re committed to having a positive impact on the planet as well. As they demonstrate,the field of green building and sustainable investment is a dynamic, fast-moving and very promising one.
