NAIOP UNVEILS ONLINE CENTER FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.

The National Association of Industrial Properties and Offices (NAIOP), Washington, D.C., has launched an online resource center to support developers engaged in "green" and sustainable development at www.naiop.org/greenresource.

The site brings together a collection NAIOP's resources related to sustainable development, ranging from publications to current legislative issues and upcoming education opportunities. Available are green-related columns and feature articles from Development magazine, NAIOP's quarterly publication; links to publications in the NAIOP Bookstore; and information on sustainable-associated research conducted by the NAIOP Research Foundation.

"NAIOP and its member companies are interested in the opportunities that green development can bring to the commercial real estate industry," said Thomas J. Bisacquino, NAIOP president. "Toward that effort, we felt it was important to create this online center as a resource for our members and the industry at large. NAIOP's green-related resources are invaluable as our members learn more about how 'green' can be implemented into their own business practices."

NAIOP's Green REsource (real estate resources) site was established to meet the growing demand of the membership for resources and education that address green development initiatives. The site will:

* Promote best practices through articles and featured companies in Development magazine;

* Provide information and links to green legislation, in states and federally;

* Feature research reports and published materials to provide "green" education; and

* Serve as an ongoing, updated center for education opportunities.

Future additions for the site include an opportunity for member-promotion of their own green development activities and recognition.

The Green REsources site is available to all users of the NAIOP Web site and is available at http://www.naiop.org/greenresource.
