Real estate portfolios and investments are improving environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and reporting. The LEED for Communities rating system requires projects at the district, neighborhood and community scales to report on energy, emissions, water, waste, transportation, social equity and quality of life and catalyzes continuous improvement. Data and documentation submitted in support of the certification process are verified by third-party expert reviewers.
The LEED for Communities rating system offers a credible framework for investors to navigate the complexities of ESG issues and make decisions. Representatives from the Howard Hughes Corporation and Crescent Communities provide details on how they are using LEED for Communities to support their ESG priorities in an urban sustainability solutions forum.
