Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, President, and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust and Owner of the Empire State Building set to share industry insights and best practices for sustainability in the built world during closing keynote speech. ESRT is a leading real estate owner, manager, and operator of office and retail space in the heart of Manhattan and the greater New York metropolitan area. Notably known as the owner of the Empire State Building, Empire State Realty Trust continues to lead the way in real estate sustainability, energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality.
The leadership in building energy efficiency by Mr. Malkin and ESRT has not only transformed the adoption of energy efficiency best practices in ESRT’s portfolio, but their forward-thinking approach has also encouraged and inspired real estate leaders from across the globe to develop new sustainable standards. Mr. Malkin has been a trailblazer in energy efficiency retrofits through the coordination of the team that consisted of the Clinton Climate Initiative, Johnson Controls, JLL, and Rocky Mountain Institute in a groundbreaking project at the Empire State Building. Mr. Malkin also led the development of standards for energy-efficient office tenant installations, which is now known as the Tenant Energy Optimization Program at the Urban Land Institute. ESRT continues to lead with the soon-to-be-announced Version 2.0 of its energy efficiency work led by Dana Robbins Schneider, the company’s SVP and director of energy, sustainability, and ESG.
