“Sustainability Efforts Need Clear Focus” – Aaron Binkley (MSRED ’07)
Binkley discussed some of the common mistakes companies could make as they ramp up their sustainability efforts.
Aaron Binkley (MSRED ’07), director of sustainability at Digital Realty Trust, Inc., joined REIT.com for a video interview at NAREIT’s 2016 Leader in the Light Working Forum in Miami. Digital Realty supports more than 1,000 firms across its portfolio of data centers located throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
According to Binkley, companies sometimes run the risk of trying to do too much as they tackle an array of initiatives such as green building certification, energy efficiency programs, governance improvement, and volunteering and social engagement.
