NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cortex Sustainability Intelligence has released its official report detailing four pressing predictions for sustainability in commercial real estate in 2022.

The guide, developed by the decarbonization experts behind the sustainability intelligence platform currently serving Empire State Realty Trust, JLL, RXR Realty, and more, offers insight to not only help CRE leaders determine which decarbonization methods to implement in their office buildings, but how to prioritize initiatives based on their sustainability and financial goals.

"With the visibility our company has through our data platform in some of the most sustainable CRE buildings in North America, we knew we had a unique opportunity and responsibility to provide more context for CRE leaders. The goal is for this guide to help inform our industry so we can all make smarter strides towards decarbonization while still making good business sense."
