Developed primarily for local associations to help field member questions about sustainability, NAR’s new Sustainability Resource Guide addresses the growing role environmental stewardship is playing in the real estate industry. NAR research shows that consumers have a growing interest in sustainability and that REALTORS® encounter this topic in their daily businesses.
“Sustainability expertise is a great way to elevate the value that your association provides to members,” says Todd Shipman, a REALTOR® and the 2018 Chair of NAR’s Sustainability Advisory Group. “By including sustainability in your community outreach plans, you can take a seat at the table helping your local area address a variety of sustainability-related topics.”
The downloadable guide available at nar.realtor/sustainability features information about organizations, programs, research, and other resources for real estate professionals in any market interested in sustainability issues, including energy efficiency, healthier homes, walkability, building performance, and weather-related risks.
