Real Estate with a Cause: Identifying Investments that Serve a Triple Bottom Line - Knowledge@Wharton

Real Estate with a Cause: Identifying Investments that Serve a Triple Bottom Line - Knowledge@Wharton | Restorative Developments | Scoop.it
Real Estate with a Cause: Identifying Investments that Serve a Triple Bottom Line by Knowledge@Wharton, the online business journal of the Wharton School.
Jacob Maddox's insight:

Real estate that is built or readapted with sustainable methodologies and materials has been and always will be the only way to do it. I have consistently told my clients that being sustainable is not just the materials you use but the harmony and value they create for themselves and the communtiy.

 

Mr. Lawrence's statement, "building green is not about bamboo floors and bicycle racks. It is about improving the bottom line by driving down expenses. It's also about learning how to be a better steward of the resources we have on the planet and how to build better in the first place. This is nothing more than old-fashioned asset management, instead of financial engineering, as a way to increase profits" is spot on.


My firm had always apporached our clients and our investements with this mentality. The old fashion way of asset management combined with the creative use of sustainable best practices and materials with financial markets.

It is the ability to look long-term and plan actions that creates value throughout the whole process of real esate.
