In the realm of commercial real estate (CRE), we at GAIN CRE are forging a new path with our innovative approach towards environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles. We are reshaping the CRE landscape by integrating sustainability into our core business model.
We have distinguished ourselves by focusing on what we refer to as a "triple win solution" — a business model that benefits tenants, investors, and the environment simultaneously. This is achieved by incorporating ESG principles into our real estate asset management practices. Our approach aligns with a growing trend in the investment community, as research suggests that 80% of investors are planning to incorporate ESG as part of their strategy in the current year.
One of our key initiatives that exemplify our commitment to sustainability is the Finley Business Center, located at 2505 S. Finley Road. This business center is a testament to our vision of creating an eco-friendly, energy-efficient, and socially responsible commercial property. The center features innovative solar energy systems, reducing carbon emissions and providing substantial energy savings for tenants. Furthermore, the presence of ultra-modern electric vehicle (EV) charging stations encourages sustainable transportation choices among our occupants.
This sustainable approach reflects a broader trend, as investors and tenants are showing increased interest in green buildings. Over the past decade, LEED-certified sustainable office buildings accounted for a staggering $357.4 billion in transactions, proving that sustainability is not merely a trend, but rather, the future of commercial real estate.
By integrating these sustainable elements into our properties, we at GAIN CRE ensure that our spaces remain competitive and attractive while also being environmentally responsible. Our commitment to ESG principles isn't merely about doing what's right; it's also a smart business move. As more investors and tenants prioritize sustainability, properties that align with these values are likely to see increased demand and, consequently, higher value.
The Finley Business Center is just the start. We plan to install solar power systems and EV chargers across our entire portfolio of properties, allowing more businesses to experience the benefits of our triple win solution.
Our dedication to sustainability and ESG principles is a testament to our forward-thinking approach. As we continue to redefine commercial real estate asset management, we stand as a beacon of innovation, showing that integrating sustainability into commercial real estate is not only possible but also profitable.
As the commercial real estate industry continues to evolve, we at GAIN CRE are setting the pace. Our blend of innovation, sustainability, and profitability is a promising sign for the future of commercial real estate, proving that it's possible to achieve a triple win solution that benefits all stakeholders.
