What You'll Learn

Our Sustainability Budgeting Course is designed to provide you with all of the necessary information on budgeting strategy for sustainability and efficiency projects. In this easy to follow webinar, your instructors Daniele Horton and Shubha Maheshwari will guide you through the core concepts and key tactics on how to develop and execute ESG budgets.

Concepts include how to think about the budget process, ways to research and identify rebates that your projects may qualify for, how to approach capital and operating expenses, key project budgeting considerations, along with financing tools and resources. We review a Sustainability Budget Quick Reference Sheet and talk you through how to implement a project budgeting plan for several different building types including office, multifamily, and industrial properties.

Throughout the course, we also share with you tips and recommendations from our experiences managing high profile ESG and sustainability projects across the US. Our insights will help you navigate potential roadblocks and how to overcome them, and how to tap into local knowledge for better results with rebates, bureaucracies, and local financing. On a more granular level, Daniele and Shubha will walk you through the proper formulas to calculate your ROI, how to approach leasing and management concerns, and the steps to write an effective green lease.
