Environmental certifications

As a long-term investor, we know that certifications are important in driving the performance of our assets. Environmental certifications are increasingly valued as a tool to promote the value and quality of a building’s construction and management, in addition to fulfilling the expectations of tenants, employees, business partners and other stakeholders. Through these certifications, we can ensure that our real estate portfolio meets recognized industry requirements and standards.
