We are committed to being a net lease leader in environmental sustainability over the long term. 

Our Commitment to Sustainability

As a net lease REIT most of our properties are leased on a triple-net basis, whereby tenants are responsible for day-to-day operations, including energy usage and sustainability practices. Despite our lack of direct control, we strive to lead the net lease industry in environmental sustainability by taking a proactive and transparent approach to quantifying and reducing our global carbon footprint

Our Primary Sustainability Objectives

Implementing technology to build and deploy scalable systems to collect and analyze tenant emissions data, which allow us to quantify our global carbon footprint and set long-term carbon reduction targets

Systematically engaging in tenant outreach and partnerships


Executing sustainability projects that reduce our carbon footprint, including renewable energy opportunities, building energy retrofits and green-building certifications
