Why do Corporate Sustainability Efforts "stall"?

The National Association of Realestate Investment Trusts (Nareit) is a great organization of major Real Estate companies in North America.  They recognize that sustainability is a big issue for the built environment and that many REITs have strong programs addressing Environmental, Social and Goverance (ESG) issues.  Recently I had the oppertunity to share some quick thoughts about why corporate sustainability efforts tend to plataeu and how leaders can help their organizations make the next leap.

NAREIT has a great library of similar short tips by REIT sustainability leaders - see more at this link to the "Jump Start" series.  And for more on the Hagen-Wilhelm diagram of phases shown in the video see other posts on this blog.

Many thanks to my NAREIT collauges Wes Kirk and Matthew Bechard
