Bisnow published a story that featured Keith Munsell, Master Lecturer of Strategy and Innovation, and his perspective on the future of sustainability in commercial real estate (CRE) after the election.
Keith explained his thoughts on Joe Biden’s and Donald Trump’s individual plans for sustainability and current trends and issues in the CRE industry surrounding energy efficiency:
Munsell said Biden’s timetable, updating millions of buildings and public structures with a set of national standards within four years, could be difficult to accomplish, especially in a contentious political environment. ‘That would take some time because now you’re talking [about] states rights vs. federal government,” Munsell said. “And that would take some time to implement, if [it got implemented] at all.’”
Bisnow’s piece explores the impact the election will have on the future of CRE, how CRE developers will respond to each candidate’s plan for sustainability, and long-term movement towards energy efficiency in CRE.
