November 11, 2016 : Investors Want to Know About REITs' Sustainability Plans

In the latest episode of The REIT Report: NAREIT's Weekly Podcast, Gabe Buerkle and Michael Hudgins of EII Capital Management talk about the importance of sustainability in the eyes of real estate investors. EII recently published a report on the evolution of sustainability programs at REITs. Hudgins said some real estate investors still show some concern about the return on investment in green technologies and business practices. He noted that in the case of major public pension plans, regulatory hurdles can actually prevent them from investing in companies implementing sustainability programs if the fund managers believe it could mean sacrificing returns.
