Centri’s Mihir Jhaveri & Michael Mastruzzo Featured in NJBIZ: Unlocking the Potential of ESG in Real Estate

Centri’s Mihir Jhaveri, Managing Director & ESG Practice Leader, and Michael Mastruzzo, Managing Director & Real Estate Practice Leader, recently contributed to an article featured in NJBIZ magazine.

The article highlights the importance of real estate businesses integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) frameworks into their operations. Despite challenges such as economic difficulties and unclear regulations, companies need to reassess their mindset and prioritize ESG to enhance profitability and mitigate risks in the long term.

Real estate entities have the opportunity to positively impact the environment and society, attracting higher-quality tenants and increasing profitability through ESG integration. Stakeholders, including tenants and regulators, expect organizations to align with their values and report on ESG goals. While there may be concerns about costs, inconsistent reporting, and the lack of mandates and standardized frameworks, regulatory requirements and industry frameworks are emerging, making it necessary for businesses to start their ESG journeys. Additionally, ESG should be viewed in conjunction with risk management, as it can affect asset valuation and attract top talent.

5 ways you can get started on your ESG journey:

  • Set short-term and long-term goals
  • Craft a specific plan with realistic and achievable steps to accomplish those goals
  • Identify the risks of potentially setting unrealistic objectives
  • Develop a plan for monitoring progress and measuring success

Real estate entities should prioritize ESG now to avoid future business and financial risks and capitalize on the potential benefits of ESG programs. Contact Centri’s experts to learn how we can help you get started on your ESG journey.
