Savanna Achieves Portfolio-Wide Recognition for Sustainability, Wellness

Savanna has been recognized by two leading industry organizations for portfolio-wide performance in sustainability and wellness. Savanna officially earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating certification for its entire New York City portfolio and achieved a four- or five-star rating for all of its portfolio level submissions to the 2020 Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) survey.
“We have been making a concerted effort over a long period of time to continually enhance our ESG program and performance, and we take great pride in both of these recent achievements,” said Savanna’s Peter Rosenthal.

He added, “While our vertically integrated team has worked together for many years to integrate sustainability across our platform, this past year, the health and wellness component of ESG became a clear focus during the pandemic. We responded accordingly and worked hard to ensure that our portfolio was appropriately positioned to accommodate tenants in a post-COVID environment.”
