At Golub, our commitment to creating lasting value extends beyond property development and management; we’re dedicated to building healthy communities and fostering a sustainable future. Recognizing the impact that real estate has on climate and our environment, we are proud to announce our latest initiative: GoEnergy.
The GoEnergy initiative is a strategic project designed to elevate the energy performance of every Golub property. Our overarching goal is to assess current energy consumption, pinpoint opportunities for reduction, and strive for benchmarking excellence, with the ultimate aim of achieving net-zero energy.
Partnering with Elara Engineering, a trusted, forward-thinking sustainability expert, we are slated to annually present comprehensive portfolio findings that not only showcase the progress made but also outline areas for improvement. Understanding the uniqueness of each property, we are conducting on-site reviews of major equipment, encompassing HVAC, water systems, lighting, controls, and more.
GoEnergy aims to identify and prioritize energy conservation measures (ECMs) that incorporate green solutions, renewables, cutting-edge technologies, and compliance with current and future codes. By focusing on opportunities for savings and carbon emission reduction, we aim to make informed decisions that resonate with our commitment to sustainability.
Elara’s team of experts will continue to collaborate with Golub’s leadership to evaluate project findings, highlight energy performance achievements, outline utility savings, and establish updated energy efficiency and carbon reduction goals for each property.
We are excited about the positive impact that GoEnergy will have on our portfolio and look forward to establishing new standards in energy efficiency as we remain dedicated to healthy communities and a more sustainable future.
