LaSalle Investment Management (“LaSalle”) is proud to announce that it has received the 2022 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for the fourth consecutive year.
Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale, and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts are essential to fighting the climate crisis and protecting public health.
Elena Alschuler, LaSalle Americas Head of Sustainability, said: “We’re thrilled to be awarded the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award for the fourth consecutive year. The EPA’s continued recognition reflects LaSalle’s commitment to a data-driven approach to sustainability throughout our investment underwriting and property ownership. Our standard practice includes using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to assess the efficiency of our properties on an ongoing basis, allowing us to advance our sustainability goals in ways that should drive financial performance for our investors.”
EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan said: “We know it’s going to take all of us working together to tackle the climate crisis, and the 2022 ENERGY STAR award-winning partners are demonstrating what it takes to build a more sustainable future. These companies are showing once again that taking action in support of a clean energy economy can be good not only for the environment, but also for business and customers.”
