Daniel Egan is Vice President of Sustainability and Utilities for Vornado Realty Trust. Dan’s sustainability program combines environmental, fiscal and social responsibility for Vornado’s national real estate portfolio.
Special projects under Dan’s jurisdiction include all LEED and Energy Star affiliated programs. He also acts as Vornado’s advocate in New York for all NYSERDA and Con Edison energy incentive programs. Of particular importance is Dan’s managing of Vornado’s Energy Efficiency Capital Improvement fund, which executes projects with measurable energy reduction targets. The projects are part of a retrofit cycle for Vornado’s existing portfolio that includes energy audits and retrocommissioning, third-party design and validation of retrofit projects, project management, and measurement and verification.
Another part of Dan’s role focuses on Vornado’s response to emerging trends in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) for the real estate industry. These ESG trends include topics in occupant health and indoor environmental quality, securing corporate debt in the form of green bonds, and the growing interest from the investor base in the reporting on and reduction of Vornado’s carbon footprint.
