ESG in Real Estate Summit: 8-9 June 2022

Investing in a better built world

The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted the real estate industry, forcing organisation to become accountable in entirely new ways. And with increasing urbanisation expected to continue, the focus on sustainability, reduction of pollution, and energy efficiency will continue to be a priority, shifting the real estate market further along the ESG frontier. Carbon neutrality to net-zero carbon in buildings and at the portfolio level should become the norm as governments and corporates focus on the Paris Agreement’s goal, driven by a value-conscious populace.

From long term institutional investors looking at potential asset obsolescence for brownfield developments to opportunistic players hunting for cheaper financing, ESG seems to be 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, how can owners, investors, developers and lenders safeguard their portfolios while increasing their returns and opening up new opportunities?

Back for its 2nd year, the ESG in Real Estate Summit will bring together over 200 executives to discuss such challenges and opportunities, network and meet with providers of ESG related solutions.
