Eight REITs have been named as 2020 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award winners, with four of the eight REITs receiving a Sustained Excellence Award—the highest honor among ENERGY STAR Awards.
Each year, EPA honors a group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements.
EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition.
Kilroy Realty Corp. (NYSE: KRC); Office Properties Income Trust (Nasdaq: OPI); SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG); and Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE: VNO) all received the Sustained Excellence Award.
REITs that were named as 2020 Partners of the Year include: Boston Properties, Inc. (NYSE: BXP); Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR); Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (NYSE: HPP); and Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL).
The RMR Group LLC, which manages all properties owned by Office Properties Income Trust, was also named a 2020 Partner of the Year.
