Environmental Responsibility: Caring for the Planet is Part of Doing Business

As of 2022, the US Green Building Council has LEED-certified 20 of CenterPoint’s buildings – totaling 8.6 million square feet – nationwide.

At CenterPoint, we believe industrial real estate development and management presents an opportunity – we see it as our responsibility – to make our world greener. So, we find smart solutions to cut carbon emissions. We develop energy-efficient buildings that reduce the use of resources. We make sure hazardous materials are properly disposed of to make tenants, communities, and local environments safer. Our operations are grounded in sustainability so we can preserve resources for years to come — and improve our tenants’ bottom lines at the same time.

CenterPoint’s Green Financing

Proceeds from our green bonds will be used to fund various projects, including green building construction and the development, operational maintenance, and acquisitions of new, existing, or refurbished buildings that receive LEED®, ENERGY STAR®, and other industry-leading certifications.
In addition, the proceeds from the Green Bonds are eligible to fund energy-efficient projects within the company’s current portfolio, which can include updates to equipment systems, operational improvements, and other sustainable maintenance.

Redeveloping Brownfields

We have decades of experience rebuilding and revitalizing contaminated or brownfield real estate. When handled properly, brownfields can be developed into highly efficient, sustainable properties that create new jobs and improve infrastructure while removing blighted, potentially harmful contaminants from the community.

Our Development Team has the expertise to make brownfields work to attain your goals while deftly navigating the liabilities typically associated with contaminated real estate. Learn more about some of our most successful brownfield redevelopment projects.
