10 Principles for Climate Mitigation Policies


This report from ULI Greenprint, prepared in partnership with USDN, serves as a starting point for cities interested in engaging real estate leaders during the shaping of climate mitigation policies, and for real estate organizations to increase their understanding of the potential impact of these policies. It provides useful tools to help city officials and those in the real estate industry engage with each other in a meaningful and ongoing way.

Each of the principles identified in this report is a distillation of recommendations identified during the Urban Land Institute’s City and Real Estate Sustainability workshops, which involved participation from more than 60 public and private sector leaders. These principles are also grounded in the context of specific best practices in cities across North America to create building-level climate mitigation policy.
