Global logistics real estate pioneer underscores value of best-in-class
building performance analytics to industrial & logistics sector
“Cabot’s long-term ESG goals necessitate a platform like Hatch Data’s to provide our tenants with meaningful data that can drive performance improvements, lowering their operating expense and decarbonizing at the same time.”
– Robert Gray, Director, Asset Management, Cabot Properties
BOSTON and SAN FRANCISCO, February 22, 2022 —Hatch Data—provider of the industry’s leading decarbonization platform for real estate—and logistics real estate leader Cabot Properties today announced a partnership that will provide best-in-class energy performance data to triple-net-lease tenants across more than 70 properties in North America.
With Hatch Data, Cabot will offer its tenants a compelling amenity: access to their real-time electricity and natural gas usage as well as custom monthly usage reports, enabling them to track the impact of their efficiency measures. In partnership with Hatch Data, Cabot will also offer data-driven capital project recommendations that will reduce their tenants’ costs of doing business.
“It’s beyond exciting to see a logistics owner-operator like Cabot expand the focus of their sustainability program beyond simply reporting,” said Ben Mendelson, Chief Commercial Officer of Hatch Data. “By providing tools to tenants that empower them to lower utilities consumption and carbon emissions, Cabot sends a clear signal to investors, the industry, and its tenants that the company is deeply committed to ESG excellence.”
Cabot’s efforts to be a sustainability leader in commercial real estate are reflected in its public ESG goals. Through its partnership with Hatch Data, Cabot will be better equipped to both provide investors and clients transparent updates on its ESG commitments and actions, and implement solutions to reduce energy consumption. The Hatch Data platform will give Cabot’s capital markets, asset management, and property management teams real-time access to utility meter data across the firm’s portfolio, data these teams can use to drive down energy consumption. In addition, the platform will automatically push Cabot’s data to ENERGY STAR and GRESB, streamlining Cabot’s ESG reporting.
“We chose Hatch Data not just because of their demonstrated expertise in data acquisition, but for the platform’s extensibility,” said Robert Gray, Director, Asset Management at Cabot Properties. “It was the perfect product fit: the platform allows us to engage in more robust ESG reporting in a fraction of the time, and it helps our tenants drive meaningful performance improvements, lowering their operating expenses while decarbonizing.”
