In the interview, Lisa highlighted her goals within the year ahead for both Nariet and the broader REIT community, and expressed excitement about helping fellow companies on their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) journeys.
I’m really looking forward to helping Nareit and our whole industry make progress, with a final goal really of being a more equitable, inclusive, diverse industry,” said Lisa.
In addition to topics including capital allocation and Regency’s recent SBTi endorsed greenhouse gas emission target, Lisa also discussed two primary long-term trends as a result of the pandemic, and ones that particularly benefit neighborhood community shopping centers: Micro-migration, and remote/hybrid work.
We have seen a lot of people move from the city core to the first ring suburbs, which is where our properties are located, so we’re seeing population growth and income growth in our trade areas,” she said.
Nareit serves as the worldwide representative voice for REITs and real estate companies with an interest in U.S. real estate. Its members are REITs and other real estate companies throughout the world that own, operate, and finance income-producing real estate, as well as those firms and individuals who advise, study, and service those businesses.
