FOREST CITY ENTERPRISESSUSTAINABLE BUILDING REFERENCE GUIDE
 
  At Forest City, we are deeply committed to the principles of sustainabledevelopment, as defined in the language of our core value:
We will strategically and competitively balance environmental resources, economic objectives and social systems as we operate our business and invest in new opportunities.
  We are also committed to enlisting you, our retail partners, in our effort to make ourcenters as financially successful, durable, efficient and healthy as possible. To that end, we have created the Forest city Enterprises Sustainable Building Reference Guide. This Reference Guide provides detailed analysis of and supportfor the itemized list of sustainable strategies as they appear in section one of your Tenant Handbook. This list is based on the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC)Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program and is ourattempt to help you wade through the plethora of information on cost-effectivesolutions to the primary elements of green building. Elements which include, but arenot limited to, energy efficiency, water efficiency, indoor air quality and naturalresource conservation. While we all still have a great deal to learn in this area, our customers and partnersare increasingly interested in understanding how sustainability practices can beincorporated into their projects. Forest City is excited to assist you in that processand encourages you to call upon us to further your understanding of the social andbusiness rationale that supports sustainable development. The items listed in this reference guide are recommended to support Forest City’s goalsfor sustainability and to support LEED for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI)certification on the part of the tenant, if so desired. Although the recommendations listedtherein are all inclusive for various Tenant types (Inline Small Shops, Outparcel, Jr. Anchor, etc.), Tenants can easily select the recommendations that are practical to theirapplication. January 23, 2007
