Stoneweg US is committed to reducing the GHG intensity of the multifamily communities we invest in by 50% in 10 years vs our 2022 baseline. To achieve this goal, we have to start with understanding what our emissions are by benchmarking. Our primary tool for benchmarking is Energy Star Portfolio Manager. Our second priority is engagement. We share our goals, educate, and incentivize our staff, service providers & investors around sustainability. The third aspect of our strategy is integrating our capital investment strategy to promote making high-efficiency mechanical and appliance replacements a routine part of all business plans, as well as adding on-site renewable sources of energy such as solar. The final step is to be transparent with our stakeholders about the results of our actions and to seek continuous improvement in the process to achieve our emissions reduction goal.
