The Jackson Control Sustainability Awards recognize exceptional performance among IREM Certified Sustainable Properties (CSP®). This award program highlights the teams of people behind sustainable building performance and encourages knowledge-sharing to help others on their sustainable property journeys.

In order to obtain the IREM certification, a property must demonstrate it can achieve a minimum total of 62 points, with points awarded by meeting specific objectives in the following categories:

  • Management's demonstrated commitment to sustainability;
  • Energy and water benchmarking and reduction goals;
  • Commitment to health, wellness and safety of residents;
  • Recycling practices, including waste diversion targets; and
  • Sustainable purchasing practices.

We believe that the IREM CSP certifications benefits our funds in a number of ways. In addition to enhancing the vehicle’s GRESB score and providing a verifiable way to track sustainability progress within the portfolio, these certifications can facilitate further awareness around sustainability initiatives at the property level.

Sentinel's overall portfolio contains 28 properties that we have certified under the IREM CSP program, with more properties scheduled to obtain certification in 2023.

Congratulations to the management and facilities teams that have done the crucial work that these nominations recognize.
