Nareit’s 2018 ESG Forum was held in Seattle from Jan. 23 – 24, offering attendees a collaborative workshop for real estate ESG professionals to advance the sustainability conversation and to share thoughts on best practices with their peers.
Ninety attendees, including 31 first-timers, participated in discussions on the most pressing issues currently facing the real estate industry, such as investors' perspectives on ESG issues; third-party ESG evaluations of companies; social and governance issues and risk management; climate events; and new trends.
This year’s program also featured a track tailored Nareit’s ESG JumpStart Program, an initiative with a goal of providing guidance to Nareit members and real estate organizations that are either just starting sustainability programs or looking for further growth in their existing programs.
