Emerging Leader

Marlee Kohn

Manager, Sustainability, Oxford Properties

Marlee plays an integral role in the success of Oxford’s Sustainable Intelligence program. Since 2016, she expanded the program across 21 assets, engaging over 100,000 individual customers in joint landlord-tenant green teams and initiatives. Her efforts have resulted in a 9% reduction in energy consumption since 2015, an average 60% diversion of waste from landfill, and she brought 15 green building certifications to successful completion across the office, retail, industrial, and residential portfolios. In 2018, she led the charge in publishing the company’s corporate sustainability report, including, for the first time, the entire global portfolio’s performance. She was a driving force behind Sustainability 2.0, Oxford’s new approach to take sustainability to the next level with impactful targets that span across the next 10 years.
