Rising to the Next Challenges:
Technology, Resiliency, and Health

Vornado is focused on the next frontier of sustainable real estate: programs that concentrate on technology, resiliency and health. We are making smart infrastructure improvements, investing in sustainable technologies, employing best practices for building operations and establishing partnerships with our tenants and communities. This creates lasting value for our investors, tenants, employees and communities.

TECHNOLOGY AND INFRASTRUCTURE

We research and implement infrastructure projects and technologies that create a more robust portfolio, increase asset valuation and improve our operational efficiency.

ENERGY EFICIENCY AND RESILIENCY

We prioritize initiatives that allow us to reduce our operating costs and impacts, and we respond rapidly and intelligently to market, regulatory and environmental risks and conditions.

HEALTH

Our commitment to green buildings ensures that our tenants work in welcoming and healthy environments. That’s one of the primary reasons we continue to attract long-term tenants. Through our healthy buildings, education programs and outreach, we continue to create the market’s most desirable places to work and live.
