Join CREFC's Sustainability Initiative

CREFC’s Sustainability Initiative will initially address the impact of climate risk on commercial real estate. Our objectives are to provide robust educational resources, promote transparency via relevant reporting standards and best practices, advocate for productive partnerships with government and other organizations, and foster creative financing solutions that enhance both the public good and the liquidity of the CRE finance market. Beyond our important efforts related to climate change, this Initiative also will focus on social responsibility and governance.

We welcome the participation of any interested CREFC member. If you would like to join the CREFC Sustainability Initiative, please contact Diana Montero and let her know your name, organization, and the subcommittee(s) in which you are interested in participating.

Please contact Sairah Burki (CREFC Managing Director, Regulatory Policy) or Kevin Fagan (Director of Moody’s CMBS/CRE Research & Chair of CREFC Sustainability Initiative) with any questions.

The Sustainability Initiative’s Three Major Subcommittees


Create a knowledge resource platform that incorporates a wide range of relevant climate topics, including science, physical risks and mitigants, financing, credit and economics, insurance, legal considerations, and regulations. The platform will also serve as a tool to connect market participants, and provide education on broader ESG concerns.
