About COPT’s Sustainability Program

Corporate Office Properties Trust’s (“COPT”’s) sustainability programs are woven throughout the fabric of our entire company. We have been developing buildings to a LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a program of the US Green Building Council) Silver minimum standard since 2003. For buildings that are operational, we invest in energy systems and equipment that reduce energy consumption and operating costs. Since 2010, we have embraced the LEED-EB prerequisites, including green cleaning, recycling, ENERGY STAR®, no smoking and other operations and maintenance policies to ensure our employees and tenants work in a healthy environment.

In 2014, we committed to participating in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (“GRESB”) survey.The 2015 survey was our first submittal, and we were pleased to have earned a “Green Star” rating, the highest quadrant of achievement. In 2017, we earned our third consecutive Green Star rating and ranked 26th among 49 North American office participants across all asset types. Please take a look at our 2017 Corporate Sustainability Report for detailed information about our sustainability program and successes.
