Our commitment to the environment



Our commitment to the environment

Cleaner buildings benefit society at large, and there is clear evidence that properties with lower carbon emissions increase in value through the use of proven, energy-reducing management strategies and technology.

In recognition of its responsibility as a real estate fund manager, GLL co-founded the “Greenprint Foundation” (Renamed ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance) in 2009 with other leading industry stakeholders with the shared commitment to reduce carbon emissions across the global property industry.

The ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance is a catalyst for change, taking meaningful, immediate and measurable actions to generate solutions that improve the environment through energy efficiency while demonstrating the correlation with increased property values. It focuses on reducing the carbon footprint of existing buildings – which currently represent one-third of global carbon emissions – and works to achieve its carbon reduction goals through education and action.

The ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance is a dedicated center of research and programming at the Urban Land Institute. The Greenprint Performance Report™ provides a consolidated view of participating properties, detailing their current carbon footprint and providing an important benchmark against which the global real estate industry can measure its progress in reducing carbon emissions. GLL, as a founding member, participates in the Performance Report.
