KIMCO PREVIEWS ITS 2015 SUSTAINABILITY PLANS AT NAREIT’S LEADER IN THE LIGHT WORKING FORUM

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trust’s (NAREIT) Leader in the Light Working Forum has become a must-attend event for an increasingly broad group of practitioners from leading REITs. Over the past several years, the Forum has evolved from a place to recognize and engage with winners of the Leader in the Light Award into a thought-provoking conference where portfolio owners, real estate investors, policy experts, and others convene to discuss the current and future state of sustainability.

This year, I was fortunate to attend the event held in Reston, Virginia and to speak with NAREIT’s Vice President, Publications Matt Bechard. Check out the video below to hear Kimco’s perspective on a range of sustainability issues, like why it’s so important for corporate sustainability reports to adhere to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) parameters, how we interpret the term “green leasing,” and other 2015 sustainability programs we have on the horizon.
