ESG 101: The Basics of Sustainability in the Built Environment

Presented by Chris Laughman, Vice President of Corporate Sustainability for Conservice

In this XCEL Rise & Grind presentation, we are going to explore ESG*. This is the session to attend if you want to figure out what all the buzz is about, and how ESG might impact how we operate our properties. You'll gain insight into leveraging data, complying with regulatory requirements, and reducing risk.

In this session, Chris will go over:

  • What is ESG and how might it affect your properties
  • How to acquire data and leverage it to focus on where it matters most
  • What is GRESB, and all the other acronyms you may have heard and what might they mean
  • Where you should start
*ESG means using Environmental, Social and Governance factors to evaluate companies and countries on how far advanced they are with sustainability.
