Tuesday, June 5
1 - 4 pm
Urban Land Institute
2001 L Street, NW
Suite 200
Washington, DC 20036-4948

Sustainability is no longer optional for property management and development because:

  • Lenders are mandating sustainability as an underwriting criteria.
  • Foreign investors will not partner with a U.S. manager or developer that does not have a sustainability program.
  • Government regulations continue to mandate compliance with energy, water and environmental performance benchmarks.
  • Properties and management companies cannot attract the interest of institutional investors without demonstrating expertise in sustainable property operations.
  • Providing healthy and environmentally efficient space creates competitive advantages to attract residents and tenants.

Property Management Association and ULI Washington will present a distinguished panel of sustainability experts who will relate both sustainability requirements that need to be me to be a competitive developer and manager of income producing properties and identify current best industry practices. 

Chrissa Pagitsas, Leader Green Financing, Fannie Mae, will relate components that sustainability programs must address to meet lending requirements and the impact of sustainability programs have on access to capital and cost of capital.

Billy Grayson, Executive Director, ULI Center for Multifamily Sustainability and Economic Performance, will discuss how sustainability programs help management companies meet government and regulatory requirements that include energy benchmarking, water conservation, recycling and other environmental mandates. He also will relate the return on investment that sustainability programs deliver in making properties more efficient, reducing operating costs, and increasing NOI. 

Jessica Long, Sustainability Director, JBG Smith, will explain market demand for sustainable developers and managers and how to market sustainability programs to secure third-party management contracts, development opportunities and attract residents and tenants.

The cost to attend the seminar is $95 for PMA and ULI members and $195 for nonmembers. PMA members use Promo Code PMA.
