A study conducted in 2020 by the University of San Diego led by Vivek Sah, et al. used real estate investment trusts (REITs) as investors' owners of properties to test if management initiatives result in higher firm value. Find evidence that green REITs have a higher return on assets than their less-green peers. As an additional analysis, find evidence of superior stock performance by green REITs over their non-green peers using Jensen's alpha as a measure.
