Sustainability is close to my heart. I strive to live in a way that reduces energy consumption, I’m aware of my carbon footprint, and when I can, I try to bring the best of the sustainability in commercial real estate to light in order to motivate others and provide some inspiration for our industry and beyond.
Today’s guest will do exactly that. Joe Rozza has recently been hired by Ryan Companies as their new chief sustainability officer. He’s based in Atlanta and brings to commercial real estate over 25 years of deep and strategic experience committed to environmentalism and sustainability. Our conversation today focuses on the state of the sustainability industry across commercial real estate and what specifically he was brought to Ryan to accomplish. There’s a lot on his plate, but he is very hopeful about this industry and what it can do to help combat climate change in a meaningful way.
