020 was a year unlike any other. COVID-19 caused global devastation,
with more than 25 million cases reported in the United States and more
than 92 million cases worldwide. Natural disasters-from forest fires to
Category 4 hurricanes-battered our nation's coasts. And, in the wake of
several high-profile cases of abuse from those in authority against individuals
and communities of color, people across the country took to the streets in
protest and public denunciation of systemic racism, shining a light on how
members of the communities our industry serves have suffered and struggled
to fight for racial and social justice.

For many, 2020 inspired
a re-assessment of how our
industry applies and promotes
issues related to the health,
both physical and mental, of
our tenants and communities.
Nareit member companies are
creating programs to address
specific health issues in their
communities. As you can read
about in the current issue,
Alexandria Real Estate
Equities, Inc. (NYSE: ARE)
recently launched OneFifteen
Living, a residential housing element of the OneFifteen opioid
treatment and recovery campus
in Dayton, Ohio.

Alexandria led the design
and development of the 4.3acre campus in partnership
with Verily, the life sciences
division of Google parent
company Alphabet Inc. This
program is a perfect example of
how REITs have their fingers on
the pulse of the needs of their
communities and step up to
serve them in tangible, effective
ways.
Meanwhile, Nareit continued
the advancement of ESG in our
industry with the celebration
of the 15th annual Leader in
the Light Awards. These awards
recognize REIT member
companies that have demonstrated superior and sustained
sustainability practices, and you
can read what REIT executives
see as key ESG trends and
topics in this issue. I am excited
to see what our industry will
bring to sustainability in the
next 15 years.

I wish you all a happy and
fruitful 2021 and look forward
to working to promote Nareit's
efforts to support ESG in the
REIT industry in the new year
and beyond.
