The Energy Challenge: A New Agenda for Corporate Real Estate

By Amory LovinsEric Maurer

From June of 2006 to April of 2007, the RMI and CoreNet Global team carried out research focused on identifying barriers, documenting successes, and outlining recommendations for the increased incorporation of energy efficiency in corporate real estate. The research included an online survey administered to over 240 real estate professionals as well as analysis of more than 15 corporations successfully incorporating energy efficiency measures and programs. The report concludes that corporations think about energy efficiency and believe it is growing in importance, yet they don’t have the management structures in place to realize improvements effectively.
