“Sustainability is not just a competitive edge or an optional business strategy—it’s a collective obligation.”
At Shorenstein, sustainability means enhancing investment performance, operational resilience, and business governance for the benefit of the company’s properties, tenants, employees, investors, and communities. We embrace sustainability as an opportunity to improve our business practices while also reducing our impact on the environment and strengthening the communities where we operate.
As an industry leader in sustainability practices, Shorenstein was one of the first real estate companies in the country to formalize a “green” initiative with a strong commitment to energy conservation and responsible environmental practices. We continue to employ operational best practices by setting annual goals and measuring our performance through national and international benchmarks such as LEED, Energy Star, Green Lease Leaders, the US Department of Energy Better Buildings Challenge, and GRESB. These efforts have added measurable value to our portfolio through reduced operating expenses and increased tenant satisfaction.

The Church Pension Group has developed a series of videos called “Insights & Ideas” that features thought leaders addressing topics central to the mission of the Church. Shorenstein is honored that the Church Pension Group selected the redevelopment of Market Square as a case study of a project that helped to catalyze the revitalization of a challenged neighborhood, San Francisco’s historic Mid-Market.
