Sustainability

Environmentally Conscious. Socially Responsible.

We are an industry leader in sustainability initiatives that have helped us to manage operating costs, attract and retain premium tenants, and ultimately enhance portfolio value. Paramount Group is also a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and we have certified millions of square feet of LEED buildings.

As an early Energy Star Leader, our entire portfolio has earned Energy Star Certifications and energy usage is monitored online in real-time. Our entire portfolio of REIT-owned properties have earned LEED EB Gold and/or Platinum and have an extensive ongoing sustainability program. We are proud to have partnered with the EPA and the USGBC to promote sustainability and green building certifications.

We are also heavily involved in our local communities. Our properties host charitable events, such as food drives, winter coat collections, blood drives, Toys-for-Tots, health and Earth Week fairs, and a host of other events that benefit the local community.
