This is the first in a series about the growing value of investment in energy efficient real estate. I like to think of it as measuring capital investment by ‘REITs and Bonds.’
An expanding offering of both Green REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) and Green Bonds continues to make significant investment headway in markets across the globe.
Understand the broader discussion with “REITS lead in mainstreaming green building” by Susan Persin, managing director, Trepp, which was originally printed in the July 31, 2013 issue of Real Estate Weekly. Key word here is ‘mainstream.’
For a quick primer to understand REITs glance through the Securities and Exchange Commission website.
