Cleaner buildings benefit society at large, and there is clear evidence that properties with lower carbon emissions increase in value through the use of proven, energy-reducing management strategies and technology. In acknowledging its responsibility as a real estate fund manager, GLL co-founded the “Greenprint Foundation” with other industry stakeholders committed to reducing carbon emissions across the global property industry.
Greenprint Foundation is a catalyst for change, taking meaningful, immediate and measurable actions to generate solutions that improve the environment through energy efficiency while demonstrating the correlation with increased property values. Greenprint focuses on reducing the carbon footprint of the built environment, which currently represents one third of all carbon emissions. Greenpint works to achieve its carbon reduction goals through education and action.
The Greenprint Foundation has recently become the ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance, a dedicated center of research and programming at the Urban Land Institute.
The Greenprint Performance Report™ provides a consolidated view of participating properties, detailing their current carbon footprint and providing an important benchmark against which the global real estate industry can measure its progress in reducing carbon emissions. GLL, as a founding member of the Greenprint Foundation, participates in the Performance Report.
