Technological innovation around energy efficiency and sourcing renewable energy are enabling significant sustainability gains in the real estate sector. At the same time, consumer demand and new local regulations are putting more stringent requirements on the sector to reduce emissions and waste--causing asset owners with billions on the line to set and meet increasingly higher goals in concert with builders, building managers, and even tenants on sustainability.
In this episode, Cass McFadden, Global Head of Sustainability at Cortland, discusses the spectrum of real estate challenges - notably those arising when a company doesn't own the properties it manages - and shares accomplishments and experiences from her previous role at Bozzuto Group, where she was working at the time of this conversation. She explains sustainability concerns in multi-family structures, newly-minted single homes, and retail space managed by her firm. Listen in to hear McFadden discuss both progress and areas needing improvement in this compelling conversation.
