VIDEO: EBI Experts on How to Begin the ESG Journey
The first question to initiate the ESG conversation with commercial real estate owners and managers is “what step of the ESG process are they in, and what is the motivating factor for them pursuing the ESG journey?” That’s Joe DiTizio, associate director of ESG business development at EBI Consulting. He goes on to say that the conversation proceeds with benchmarking where progress has been made and then focusing on areas of improvement.
In a discussion moderated by Connect Media VP Sarah Quinn, DiTizio and ESG program manager Will Duggan discuss how the company’s team makes ESG work for clients, the client takeaway from the first meeting, clients’ most frequently expressed concerns as they begin their ESG journey, what the first steps are that clients take on that journey, and more. See the complete discussion in the video below.
DiTizio will also be among the CRE experts sharing insights at the in-person Connect Los Angeles event taking place June 22 at the Hotel Indigo DTLA. Register for the event here.
