We all agree that sustainability is important. It helps reduce waste, reduce costs, and can even influence consumer decisions. At Kimco, our corporate responsibility program has reduced same-site energy consumption within the company’s operational control by 15 percent since its launch in 2011. Kimco also recently achieved the “Green Star” designation from the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) for the third consecutive year, and was named for the second consecutive year to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI).

And while we love sustainability and all of its positive impacts, there does come a point where things can get a bit out of hand!

Special thanks to Ruth Sessler, leasing assistant at Kimco, for coming up with this seriously sustainable REIToon!
