For those of you in the NY Tri-State Area, I am excited to announce an upcoming ICSC Alliance Program entitled “Going Green: Measuring REAL Economic Benefits for Landlords” on April 4th, 2013 from 7:30 – 10:00 am. These events are great for both learning and networking with retail real estate industry professionals and their public and non-profit sector partners.
Industry experts will offer a practical primer on the costs and benefits from the Landlord’s perspective of incorporating green features into shopping centers. They will also discuss how to evaluate potential improvements affecting energy, water, waste and indoor environment from a financial perspective, how to partner with the public sector and tenants to achieve meaningful financial goals and lessons learned. Examples of actual greening projects completed at area shopping centers will be used to meaningfully and realistically explain the benefits of these types of investments.
My ICSC Alliance co-chair, Ellen Sinreich, President of Green Edge, LLC will moderate the discussion. Additional panelists include:
- David DeVos, Global Director of Sustainability at Prudential Real Estate Investors
- Brian Hennessey, Managing Director at American Capital Energy
