Grounding the Green Movement: What's Underground Really Matters

Presented by

James Stanton, Environmental Data Resources; Dianne Crocker, Environmental Data Resources

About this talk

Finding a ‘green’ home or commercial building typically means evaluating the sustainable materials used in the structure and the energy footprint. But what about the toxic hazards that could be lurking under your property? There are numerous environmental characteristics that can exist within your property, or adjacent properties, some of which could wash the green right off of your low-energy, LEED-certified building! What’s more, if you’re looking for financing, you should know that lenders, in the wake of the real estate downturn, are placing a great deal of emphasis on factors like environmental contamination that can negatively affect a property’s value and potentially expose them to liability. Join us for this informative session that will help you to understand the importance of environmental due diligence in your quest for finding a green property. Speakers: James B. Stanton, VP of Products and Marketing, Environmental Data Resources Dianne Crocker, Principal Analyst, Environmental Data Resources
