    T3 Collingwood: Redefining timber construction in Australia

    The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) aims to substantially reduce construction- related emissions by investing in support of greener alternatives to conventional materials. To support their mission of investing to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, the CEFC launched a $300m Timber Building Program in early 2022 to transform the Australian construction landscape. Australia’s newest eco-friendly timber high-rise, T3 Collingwood, is the first timber developments to be financed under the new program. It is also the first in- country development to adopt Hines’ proprietary T3 development blueprint that prioritizes the use of timber. Join the CEFC and Hines as they discuss this market leading program and what they have learned on the way to spearhead future projects:

    MEET THE MANAGERS: Global investor perspectives on ESG in Real Estate

    Pandemic- and climate-related disruption, geopolitical unrest, and a growing recognition of social inequity has prompted investors to adopt a more robust approach to sustainability related risks. Major institutions are now deploying capital into buildings with the highest levels of green credentials, with these assets starting to separate themselves from the pack. This trend is set to gather pace as the world’s top sovereign wealth and super funds have listed ESG as a key driver in their decision making. This panel features speakers from across the built environment to review the growing impact of ESG across Commercial, Residential, Industrial, Health and Retail Funds.

    • Why positioning assets for net-zero is paramount to future success
    • What role can increased bifurcation play in regenerating stranded assets?
