    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.
