POSITION SUMMARY: The Urban Land Institute’s Greenprint Center for Building Performance (Greenprint) is seeking a Senior Manager to lead the implementation of a new Net Zero initiative—a multiyear program providing research and technical assistance to public and private-sector leaders to accelerate decarbonization in the built environment. This position will report to the Senior Vice President, Greenprint.
ULI’s Greenprint Center for Building Performance is a research center and a worldwide alliance of leading real estate owners, investors, and strategic partners committed to improving the environmental performance of the global real estate industry. Through measurement, benchmarking, knowledge sharing, and implementation of best practices, Greenprint and its members strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and achieve net-zero-carbon operations by 2050.
Core areas of focus for the Greenprint Center include reducing carbon emissions and increasing building value across the built environment. This includes development of research reports and resources on the business case for high-performance green buildings, convening of market leaders to advance sustainability in real estate, developing and analyzing the benchmark performance of ULI Greenprint members, and the promotion of Greenprint member progress to the broader ULI membership and real estate market at large. Long-term focus areas include city climate goals and policies as well as tenant sustainability opportunities.
The Net Zero advisory initiative is a new five-year program launching in July 2021 to benefit, support, and advance the sustainability mission of ULI through the arrangement and management of technical assistance panels (TAPs) and other advisory services designed to help owners, cities, and other relevant constituents reduce or eliminate carbon emissions associated with buildings, communities, and cities. The goal of the effort is to provide concrete ideas and strategies to the beneficiaries of the TAPs and the general public to eliminate carbon emissions from the built environment. The Net Zero advisory initiative will also foster a long-term cohort of participants to collaborate over time and learn from each other as they work to implement the recommendations from the panels.
