Last week, the Real Estate Sustainability Council (RESC) held its first meeting of 2020 in Washington, D.C. Nearly 40 REITs were represented by their sustainability leaders. The meeting included an update by Nareit on its latest environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.
RESC members also discussed the fast evolution of ESG issues as an important part of business rather than an independent initiative; growing investor interest and how REITs can garner attention; evolving disclosure expectations; and how governance falls into ESG efforts. RESC continues to support the REIT industry’s consistent progress in ESG implementation and reporting.
