Social and environmental aspects of firms’ global supply chains are increasingly being recognized as key considerations to take into account when making business decisions. Some measures are relatively well-defined by now, such as carbon footprinting. Social considerations are more recently gaining increasing attention, in particular in the technology supply chain. Firms in the technology sector are constantly making decisions that have economic, environmental and social dimensions, and hence they are, explicitly or implicitly, trading off fundamentally different economic, environmental and social measures. The purpose of this project is to interview key stakeholders within technology firms, to better understand how they do this.

We propose to study incentives for technology adoption in the commercial buildings sector. This study will evaluate the performance outcomes related to the adoption of energy efficient technologies, such as reduced energy consumption and investor performance, in terms of rent price premiums, occupancy rates and energy savings. Using a unique dataset constituting of 178,777 buildings in the City of Los Angeles, this research will also evaluate how different financing models can alleviate split incentives problems, a well-known barrier to the adoption of energy efficient technologies.
