ULI and Greenprint Foundation create ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance
Member-to-member information exchange measures energy use, carbon footprint of commercial portfolios.
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is transferring the activities and assets of the Greenprint Foundation into the newly formed ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance. With this action, ULI is continuing the operation of an industry-to-industry initiative through which real estate professionals exchange information and measure individual building and portfolio performance on the basis of energy use and carbon emissions.
The ULI Greenprint Center will be incorporated into ULI’s broader Climate, Land Use, and Energy initiative. The center will carry on the Greenprint Foundation’s mission, which is to lead the global real estate community in the use of greenhouse gas reduction strategies that support the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change goals for global greenhouse gas stabilization by 2030. The ULI Greenprint Center will continue to advance the Greenprint Foundation’s goal of a 50% reduction in building emissions by that date. Currently, the energy used in buildings represents one-third of all global energy consumption. BD+C
