    PANEL DISCUSSION: Green Healthy Buildings – The circular Impact of wellbeing on tenant attraction & retention

    Introducing ecological solutions such as reduced water & power consumption, high acoustic comfort, and access to daylight not only reduce operating expenses but also improve tenant satisfaction and make a building highly desirable to investors seeking long-term sustainable performance. Wellbeing is now measured by the environmental and social offerings within a building and organisation, so it is time to excel at the E and the S and don’t forget to back this up with the G!

    • Shattering silos: It’s time for HR, Heads of Sustainability, C-Suite, and the Board to collaborate and prioritise mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing in workplace strategy and building amenities. But how?
    • Value Creation: workplaces that support diversity, inclusion, cultural requirements, and neurodiversity. What are the tenants really wanting?
    • Building end user push for transparent double materiality, circular economy, and quantifiable net zero commitments by corporate, managers, owners, and investors. How can this be reported to tenant employees in basic English and free from greenwashing?
