“We're seeing the shift to ESG. Prior to the pandemic, we weren't talking about ESG, we were still talking about corporate sustainability. The pandemic really highlighted wellness in a way that we hadn't seen before. The green building industry really moved the focus into the health and wellbeing of people. That really shifted the conversation from ‘we have to just build green.’ No, it's not just about building green, it's also about making sure that our facilities are green on the inside for our people.’”
