Nareit’s recently updated REIT ESG Dashboard, which reflects publicly reported data for the 100 largest U.S. REITs by equity market capitalization, shows that the number of REITs with dedicated ESG staff has more than doubled since 2017.

The International Labor Organization estimates that 24 million jobs worldwide could be created by the green economy alone by 2030, yet the supply of green talent is already lagging demand, per the latest LinkedIn Global Green Skills Report.

Join Nareit for an ESG Exchange webinar to find out what it’s like to work in an ESG role for a REIT; gain insights into green economy hiring trends and how you might find your next role; and learn more about the growing focus on ESG in the REIT and publicly traded real estate industry.

The Green Economy: ESG Career Paths in Real Estate will be held on May 24 at 2:00 p.m. EST, and a recording will be made available to registrants.

Panelists include:

  • Kurt Harrison, Co-head of the Global Sustainability Practice, Russell Reynolds Associates
  • Fulya Kocak, SVP of ESG Issues, Nareit (moderator)
  • Kim Pexton, Vice President of Sustainability, JBG SMITH
  • Ryan T. Yetzer, Sr. Manager, Construction & Sustainability, Physicians Realty Trust
