What Are The Digital Drivers for ESG in Commercial Real Estate

Learn how Sharry and our PropTech solutions can help you achieve your ESG targets. Do not tick a box, make a difference with your ESG strategy in your office portfolio.

Over the past decade, the ESG program has evolved to reflect the increasing complexity of material environmental, social, and governance issues. All this has one common goal – to add long-term value to real estate and make a positive impact in three areas: environmental, social and governance.

Investors' preference is shifting to accountable, attractive places for people and nature. According to the Cushman & Wakefield study, ESG offices are already priced 25% above non-ESG. The pandemic accelerated tenant demand for ESG assets.

What do we do at Sharry?

“We partner with landlords, tenants and workplace providers committed to work towards the workplace performance and actively deliver on their ESG targets,” commented Vlad Masinsky, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Sharry.
Sharry partnered with SL Green to develop and launch building mobile applications at 23 properties across its portfolio in NYC. The SL Green mobile applications include features that bring added convenience and comfort to the daily routines of its tenants.
