IREM Certified Sustainable Property (CSP)

Your certification is waiting

Earning IREM Certified Sustainable Property certification is meaningful recognition that says a lot about you and your property. The IREM CSP is applicable to a wide variety of properties and many hard-to-certify properties have already earned the certification. The process is understandable and actionable, so not only can you do it, but you can do it on your own. It’s likely that you’re already implementing many of the required practices. It’s more affordable than you might expect too. If it’s something you’ve thought about in the past, now’s the time to act.

Need some guidance to get started? Check out these best practices from a research study on the CSP as part of an Elaina's Sustainability Fund Grant and listen to our From the Front Lines episode with Erin Hopkins, PhD, on the research. View the full report on this research.
