According to the 2021 Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction, buildings accounted for 37% of energy-related carbon dioxide (“CO2”) emissions and 36% of global energy demand in 2020. And though these figures represent a drop from 38% and 37%, respectively, in 2019, the report advised that the pandemic-driven decline is temporary since the emissions and energy demand are poised to increase with growing economic activity (https://nnw.fm/pOS9N).
And with experts warning that, if left unchecked, the emissions could double by 2050 (https://nnw.fm/Q6QjO), regulators, investors, nongovernmental organizations, and tenants are increasingly mounting pressure on the real estate sector to implement best practices that not only improve sustainability but also reduce greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions. As this happens, property investors like Morgan Stanley’s Real Estate Investing (“MSREI”) arm are recognizing other possible outcomes beyond the environmental benefits, and Correlate Infrastructure Partners (OTCQB: CIPI) is empowering real estate investment trusts (“REITs”), investors, and commercial property owners to profitably implement the sustainable practices and enjoy these favorable monetary outcomes.
In a report, the MSREI investment managers observed an emerging global trend that has seen efficiency and performance optimization drive the value of real estate (https://nnw.fm/VhlN6). “Overall, the real estate investment team estimates that a typical building that integrates sustainable practices could help reduce building expenses by 3 to 30%, creating $3.5 billion to $34.9 billion of asset value in the top 10 U.S. markets in the process,” an excerpt from the report reads.
The MSREI brief analyzed the impact of sustainability investments on ten real estate return factors through the lens of financial indicators such as revenue, operating expenses, financing cost, leasing expenses, and property value. It noted that “real estate portfolios that integrate sustainability may be better positioned to attract and retain reliable, long-term occupants,” hence boosting revenue. The practices also reduce operating expenses related to waste disposal, water, and energy and are more likely to attract favorable debt terms as bankers and investors seek to reward real estate companies that embrace sustainability.
Additionally, green buildings are linked to lower leasing expenses as a result of reduced carry costs because of less downtime. Finally, sustainable practices have been shown to trigger property appreciation – retrofitting buildings and optimizing their energy usage directly impacts net operating income (“NOI”) by lowering operating costs or increasing revenue. And according to the brief, a higher NOI increases the value of a property.
In understanding the benefits of putting up efficient and energy-optimized buildings, Correlate has committed to helping commercial real estate owners improve their buildings’ NOI, lower carbon emissions, and reduce deferred maintenance. Correlate is a company that offers a complete suite of proprietary clean energy assessment solutions for the commercial real estate industry as well as developing and financing renewable energy projects.
