ESG in Real Estate Summit: 17-18 May 2023

The leading real estate event for investors, developers and lenders that want to safeguard their portfolios while increasing their returns and opening up new opportunities

Climate risks and ESG considerations have become increasingly important to real estate investment and development decisions. From long term institutional investors looking at potential asset obsolescence for brownfield developments to opportunistic players hunting for cheaper financing, ESG is touching the entire life cycle of real estate transactions.

With risk return fundamentals incorporating ESG standards, as well as governmental regulations picking up on these topics for the real estate industry, investors, developers and lenders need implement the right strategies and solutions to safeguard their portfolios while increasing their returns and opening up new opportunities.

The 3rd annual ESG in Real Estate Summit will bring together senior real estate investors, owners, operators, developers, lenders and solution providers to examine how the commercial real estate industry can seize opportunities and overcome challenges related to developing and implementing ESG initiatives. The event is unique in its focus on ESG in commercial real estate and also the capital markets perspective that it provides.

The ESG in Real Estate Summit 2023 will cover the following big themes:

  • How should decarbonisation strategies be incorporated into financial decision making
  • How investors can manage the transition to a net-zero world – due diligence and portfolio management
  • ESG performance management, reporting and benchmarking
  • Digitisation & Automation – Improving your assets sustainability credentials
  • Wellbeing & Social Value – Healthy buildings, health profits?
  • Evaluating ESG risks related to third parties
  • The evolving role of technology in ESG and DEI initiatives
  • Mitigating Climate Risk Impact on Real Estate Value
  • Net-zero Retrofits – Profits or Losses
  • Data & Net-Zero: How can data augment decision making in ESG management
