Unlocking Warehouse ESG: Commentary from Jamie Gray-Donald, SVP, Sustainability and EHS
In commercial real estate, warehouses and other industrial assets are often seen as outliers in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts due to their reputation of increasing vehicle use and economic insecurity. However, warehouses could soon become the top performing asset class when its potential for sustainability and contribution to social value is fully realized.
Jamie Gray-Donald, Senior Vice President, Sustainability and EHS, delves into how warehouses could be big drivers of ESG in his article published in IPE Real Assets on August 19, 2022. He also covers topics including the use of rooftop solar panels, examples of ESG leadership in warehouses around the world, and QuadReal’s partnership with Fitwel.
