LaSalle has developed a guide for our portfolio and asset managers to educate them about a variety of low or no-cost sustainable operational “Best Practices”. These are designed to help reduce energy and water consumption, increase recycling efforts, and reduce the overall carbon footprint of our managed real estate assets. In so doing, we anticipate that a further benefit of these efforts will be reduced operating expenses, and more competitive properties in their respective markets.
We believe that we will most readily achieve our sustainability objectives by collaborating with our clients, our tenants and our peers in the industry. In furthering industry cooperation regarding sustainability practices, we are sharing LaSalle’s GreenGuide. We would value any suggestions for enhancements of our recommended practices.
