Webinar Summary:

What is environmental justice, and how does it impact the real estate industry? It’s complex - influenced by choices in land use, housing, and finance (to name a few). Black, Latino and Indigenous communities can be alienated by policies that many see as focused on save-the-planet idealism at the expense of their communities, from elevated asthma rates in pollution-clogged urban communities to proposed cap and trade policies that allow polluting refineries to double down and continue in local neighborhoods.

The real estate sector has played a major role in determining which communities experience greater environmental, climate, and health risks – through decisions or support of infrastructure, transportation, renewable energy, building materials, and site location. Community organizations and activists are also deeply involved in shaping the future of their neighborhoods, and they have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share in forming a more equitable path forward together.

Hear from organizations on the front lines of the environmental justice movement about their work and how real estate actors can continue supporting positive change.
