A busy week ahead. I’m on my way to the CoreNet Global Summit in New Orleans, where I will be participating on a panel about innovation and value creation in the corporate real estate world.
As everyone knows by now, improvements in energy and sustainability represents a tremendous opportunity for corporate real estate directors to reinforce their enterprise value by cutting operational costs, engaging employees, and contributing to carbon reduction goals. Naturally, the Summit includes an entire track of sustainability sessions, and I’ll also be speaking with many of our corporate real estate clients and colleagues about strategies they’re pursuing in this fast-moving area.
With Earth Day coming up, I’m sure there will be some discussion of ways that real estate departments are helping their companies observe the event. Of course, for those of us designing and implementing ways to maximize energy efficiency and be green in the workplace, every day is Earth Day.
