Since its founding in 1972 in Indianapolis, Indiana, Duke Realty has been a leader in commercial real estate development. From its first property—Building One in Park 100 Business Park on the northwest side of Indianapolis—Duke Realty has set the standard for providing high-quality, innovative, and distinctive environments that meet businesses’ operating needs. For nearly 40 years, Duke Realty has developed premier buildings across the country. Their expertise, financial strength, and commitment to quality have cemented our reputation and helped position us as one of the largest publicly traded owners, managers, and developers of industrial/medical office/office properties in the United States.
The decision to support the development of new sources of green power – primarily Missouri wind power - through the purchase of renewable energy credits (RECs) for their property in Clayton Missouri was two-fold. First, the company realized that by purchasing renewable energy for a portion of the electricity used in the building reduces the property’s carbon footprint. And second, their purchase of green power provided Duke Realty with the ability to support the Clayton EPA Green Power Community Challenge for the property’s city of residence, Clayton Missouri.
