26 September 2011 – The Greenprint Foundation’s development of a benchmarking performance of the built environment’s investment sector has been accepted as a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action.
The GF is a worldwide alliance of leading real estate owners, investors, financial institutions and other stakeholders committed to reducing carbon emissions in the global property industry.
Greenprint will model office property portfolios organised by metropolitan areas and establish a useful method of performance measurement and benchmarking.
It will release its office index plan by July 2012 with Volume 3 of its performance report.
Greenprint is also a participating partner in two other CGI Commitments to Action – Scaling Demand for Commercial Tenant Green Build outs and the New York City Energy Efficiency Corporation.
“Our involvement in three CGI Commitments to Action builds on our groundbreaking work to provide the real estate community with transparent and verifiable benchmarks, and an effective manner in which to report their progress in lowering carbon emissions and energy use,” chief executive officer, Greenprint Foundation, Charles B Leitner said.
