Continuing a History of Sustainability
As executives of Coretrust predecessor Thomas Properties Group, Inc. (NYSE:TPGI), the Coretrust founders were early adopters of environmental sustainability for office buildings. Their track record in sustainable development and operations dates to the early 1990s with the development of Playa Vista in Los Angeles, CA (1991-97) and the Joe Serna Jr. Cal/EPA Headquarters building in Sacramento, CA (1998). The Cal/EPA Headquarters became the first high-rise office tower in the U.S. to earn a LEED Platinum designation. Following this project, the Coretrust founders led TPGI’s participation in various US Green Building Council pilot programs and successfully achieved LEED certification for 15 buildings totaling 11.7 million SF plus another 6.3 million SF of LEED-certified development entitlements.
As Coretrust, the team currently owns and/or operates 3.7 million SF of LEED Gold or Platinum and Energy Star rated buildings.

Coretrust is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI), the world’s largest reporting project on responsible investment. Our commitment to the UNPRI supports our larger goal of advancing sustainability and ESG. Our effort involves policies, assessments and investments at both the corporate and property levels, educational initiatives, and communications measures for the benefit of all Coretrust stakeholders.
Coretrust’s owned portfolio of 2.5 million SF of trophy office properties is LEED Gold and Energy Star certified. This portfolio achieved carbon neutral status in 2022 through energy efficiency upgrades, operational improvements, and the acquisition of REC options and offsets. Coretrust will continue to seek improved energy efficiency at each property in its portfolio and thereby reduce the number of REC options and offsets needed to maintain carbon neutrality.
Additionally, we target achieving carbon neutrality at new properties within the first 5 years of ownership.
