Measuring Green

JoAnne L. Dunec

McLinden, S., “Measuring Green: ICSC’s Green Benchmark Will Let Landlords Rate Their Sustainability,” Shopping Centers Today (August 2012) describes efforts to standardize green rating for the retail development industry.

According to McLinden, the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) will roll out the “ICSC Property Efficiency Scorecard” in 2013, which will be a “‛green’ benchmarking system unique to the retail development industry.” The scorecard “will be an interactive software program that allows owners to measure themselves against industry averages and similar properties locally, regionally and nationally.”
