Partnerships & Programs

The Cal EPA building

Partnerships and programs are an integral part of achieving TPG’s sustainability goals. That’s why TPG is continually in the forefront of working with industry leaders and organizations on green program initiatives such as being the first major Real Estate company to join the California Climate Action Registry, to voluntarily measure and report their company-wide emissions.

Because of their reputation as a green leader, TPG is periodically invited to participate in new industry initiatives and discussions. TPG was invited by the California Sustainability Alliance to be a representative for their market sector in discussions about gaining support for the widespread voluntary adoption of sustainability and to help develop the Green Leases Toolkit, an endeavor that is achieving national interest.

CLIMATE ACTION REGISTRY

TPG is the first major real estate company to join the California Climate Action Registry, a non-profit private partnership that serves as a voluntary greenhouse gas (GHG) registry to protect, encourage, and promote early actions to reduce GHG emissions.

TPG is taking steps to voluntarily measure and report its company-wide emissions. TPG believes measuring its footprint will: (1) assist in managing risk; (2) prepare for trading; (3) demonstrate environmental leadership; (4) demonstrate action on GHG emissions; and (5) assist with staying ahead & preparing for upcoming regulations.
