2022 Progress Report and a Look Ahead for 2023
Part of Duane Morris LLP’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Webinar Series
About the Program
Among nonfinancial criteria, businesses must increasingly consider ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) to stay relevant to their employees, customers, and boards.
Beyond making smart business sense, ESG initiatives can help drive efficiency, increase engagement, and involve constituents in critical ecological and social improvements.
Increasingly, investors, shareholders, and money managers want to know a company does more than just turn a profit; indeed, having a positive impact on the world at large is often a metric used to gauge the long-term health and viability of a commercial enterprise. Investments in real estate and development are now being evaluated for ESG sustainability by and for players in capital markets.
With 2022 behind us, we will review major developments and stories from the past year―as well as share our hopes and predictions for what 2023 might have in store.

“Most stakeholders – from shareholders, to employees, to customers, to communities, and regulators – now expect companies to play a role in decarbonizing the global economy. Few things will impact capital allocation decisions – and thereby the long-term value of your company – more than how effectively you navigate the global energy transition in the years ahead.”
~ Larry Fink, CEO, BlackRock, 2022 Letter to CEOs
Historically, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals reflected a company’s public relations strategy, primarily driven by investor demands and not central to the success of their business and brand. Those days may be fast disappearing as resident and employee prospects are also making decisions based on how they feel about the company brand as it relates to corporate social responsibility, diversity of leadership, and commitment to environmental principles.
Relative benchmarking platforms, like GRESB, improve both multifamily companies’ and investors’ ability to reveal ESG performance over time while also providing transparency and insight into industry standard practices. This expanding practice area will require due diligence on a provider’s data standards and methodologies to identify the right ESG reporting framework.
Hear from companies who are leaning in to their ESG goals and why it matters to your bottom line. Join Brenna Walraven, President and CEO, for Corporate Sustainability Strategies, as she moderates National Multifamily Housing Council’s OPTECH Conference session: The Real Deal: Why an Authentic ESG Reporting Strategy Matters.
