Bringing Benchmarking to the C-Suite: A Talk With Nils Kok

Interview in National Real Estate Investor:
"If the movement to benchmarkcommercial buildings—that is, to track buildings’ energy consumption and energy-efficiency performance—has a leader, it is arguably economist Nils Kok. The Dutch economist currently holds positions as a visiting scholar at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and as associate professor in Finance and Real Estate at Maastricht University, the Netherlands. He is also the founder of Green Real Estate Sustainability Benchmarking (GRESB), an international, Netherlands-headquartered organization committed to “bringing benchmarking to the C-Suite,” in Kok’s words."
