Principles for Responsible Investment

In July 2009, LaSalle became a signatory as an Investment Manager to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). As part of this, we made a commitment to report on our progress toward PRI:

  • We will incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes
  • We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices
  • We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest
  • We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry
  • We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles
  • We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles

 

ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance

LaSalle is a charter member of ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance, the largest global collection of transparent, verifiable and comprehensive data about the environmental performance of buildings, which tracks a growing number of LaSalle-managed assets. The ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance is a catalyst for change, taking meaningful, immediate and measurable actions to generate real estate solutions that improve the environment through energy efficiency while demonstrating the correlation with increased property values. 

Green Guide

LaSalle developed the Green Guide to educate our portfolio and asset managers on 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.
