Transforming business as usual in real estate can lead the path to an equitable, low-carbon future. IMT can help.

The business world is shifting and adapting constantly, and the business of real estate is no exception. IMT is dedicated to co-creating, testing, and sharing business practices that rethink how buildings are designed, constructed, managed, and valued to save billions of dollars annually, reduce harmful emissions, and improve community resilience, health, and economic opportunity. Together, IMT unites real estate decision makers, community representatives, government leaders, and energy efficiency service providers to create higher-performing, healthier, more resilient properties that not only help the people within them thrive, but also support the communities around them.
