Starlight Investments Honoured for Sustainability Excellence with Two Jackson Control Awards

Starlight Investments proudly announces its dual triumph in the prestigious Jackson Control Sustainability Awards, clinching top honours for our U.S. residential portfolio in the multi-family housing asset class for Carbon Reduction and Energy Conservation, as well as Water Conservation. These accolades, bestowed by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), underscore Starlight’s unwavering commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles, reinforcing its position as a leader in sustainable real estate practices.

The Jackson Control Sustainability Awards recognize excellence among the IREM Certified Sustainable Properties (CSP®) certification recipients, spotlighting outstanding performance in sustainable building management. Both Summermill at Falls River and Lassiter North Hills, managed by Avenue5 Residential and located in Raleigh, North Carolina, earned the esteemed IREM CSP® green building certification in 2023, a testament to Starlight’s dedication to sustainability.

As the global community increasingly recognizes the importance of ESG considerations, Starlight Investments proudly acknowledges the honour of being recognized by the Jackson Control awards for our outstanding achievements in both Carbon Reduction and Energy Conservation, as well as Water Conservation. The company understands that integrating ESG factors into its operations is not only essential for long-term success but also for creating positive societal and environmental impacts,” commented Scott Bigford, Senior Vice President, Asset Management.
