Deutsche Strategist Discusses Importance of Sustainability Data

Ari Frankel, head of ESG strategy, real estate, at Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, joined for a video interview at NAREIT’s 2014 Leader in the Light Working Forum in San Francisco.

Frankel was asked why gathering sustainability data has become a key project for the REIT industry. He responded that 100 percent of studies that have looked at the connection between sustainability performance and financial performance have demonstrated a positive correlation, which isn’t the case in other asset classes.
