Their leadership and innovation are crucial in our collective fight against climate change while strengthening the U.S. economy.”

Elena Alschuler, Americas Head of Sustainability, added: “We’re proud to be an inaugural partner in the Better Climate Challenge, and strongly believe in its mission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This aligns with our continued efforts, through multiple regional and global commitments, to reduce the carbon footprint of our portfolio not only to help preserve the environment, but also to help drive returns for our investors through reduced energy use and lower operating costs.”
