Steve O’Connell, CEO of Grosvenor’s North American urban property business, expressed the company’s resolute stance, stating, “Through lowering the carbon intensity of our properties, reducing the environmental impacts from our development activities, creating programs to help our tenants and suppliers reduce emissions, and establishing a carbon-focused corporate culture, we’re confident in our ability to support a climate resilient future while improving our portfolio value.”

As part of its comprehensive strategy, Grosvenor is not only focusing on renewable energy solutions, including solar, wind and other energy saving technologies, but also prioritizing the integration of EV charging stations into its properties. By making EV charging infrastructure more accessible, Grosvenor hopes to promote eco-friendly transportation choices and contribute to the ongoing decrease in carbon emissions linked to conventional vehicles.

Tor Burrows, Grosvenor’s Group Sustainability Director, highlighted the company’s multifaceted approach, saying, “Our North American property business is focused on improving the overall performance of its assets, aligning and prioritizing reduction targets to focus on areas such as the supply chain, tenant spaces, and embodied carbon. The launch of this latest Pathway shows that many tools for success are already in place, such as internal green building standards and sustainable supply chain guidelines, which further underscores our determination to meet our shared global carbon reduction goals.”

Our Net Zero Carbon Pathway supports improvements to how we work with our tenants and suppliers, including seeking out opportunities to collaborate on emissions reduction tactics – an example of how we are shifting our business operations to better support a climate solution for a greener future.”
