ILPT’s business strategy incorporates a focus on sustainable approaches to operating our properties in a manner that benefits our shareholders, tenants, and the communities in which we are located. We seek to operate our properties in ways that improve the economic performance of their operations, while simultaneously ensuring tenant comfort and safety and managing energy and water consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions.

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts are primarily implemented by our manager, The RMR Group (Nasdaq: RMR).

Recent sustainability highlights include:

Publishing of New Policies: In 2022, our Board of Trustees adopted four new policies, available on our Governance page, including a Business Partners’ Code of Conduct, an Employee Health and Wellness Policy, a Human Rights Policy and a Philanthropy Policy.

Property Certification: In 2022, ILPT property 91-238 Kauhi Street in Kapolei, Hawaii, became the first property in the state of Hawaii to earn the BOMA 360 Industrial designation. The property was also the first in our portfolio to be ENERGY STAR certified.

Board Diversity: ILPT’s Board of Trustees is composed of approximately 29% women and 14% members of underrepresented communities1.
