ULI and Ferguson Partners Team Up for Sustainability Outlook

Washington – The Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Greenprint Center for Building Performance has announced a three-year exclusive partnership with Ferguson Partners, a global boutique talent management company, to jointly collaborate on the annual ULI Global Sustainability Outlook, which is published each January.

The publication reports on the key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues that impact strategic decision-making each year.

“There is an urgent need for the real estate industry to take a more sustainable approach to development and operations,” says Marta Schantz, senior vice president of the ULI Greenprint Center for Building Performance. “Our ULI Global Sustainability Outlook has been an essential resource for companies that are looking to understand the impact of sustainability on real estate in the coming year, and we are therefore thrilled that Ferguson Partners has joined with us to widen the positive impact that our publication can have.”

Ferguson Partners’ managing director and global head of innovation and technology, Linda Isaacson, who is also a ULI global governing trustee and sits on the ULI Americas Executive Committee, says, “Our firm’s focus on innovation, digital transformation, disruptive technologies, and other trends impacting the built environment will be invaluable to ULI’s critical research that will ultimately help real estate organizations with their sustainability journey and mandates.”

The next ULI Global Sustainability Outlook is expected to include interviews with members of the ULI Americas Sustainable Development Council, ULI Europe Sustainability Council and ULI Asia Pacific Resilient Cities Council. The full report will be published in early 2022 and a launch webinar will take place on Jan. 12, 2022.
