Environmental concerns continue to represent some of our largest ESG priorities at Realstar, as we tackle a constantly-changing landscape. Efforts to prepare for decarbonization are intensifying, and research to strengthen asset resilience is ongoing. In looking at environmental concerns holistically, it brings us some consolation that many of the strategies that can be used to assist with decarbonization will also strengthen asset resilience.
