Dr. Eime Tobari, Social Value Strategist / Director, COCREATIF Limited
ESG, responsible/impact investing and shared value approach are on the rise. This is partly driven by the increased awareness of Climate Change and material financial risks associated with it in the investment world. Whilst this movement certainly started to create a flow of financial capital into businesses addressing environmental sustainability issues, some are criticised for so-called ‘green washing’ – using ESG reporting to gain traction but not making real contributions. In the meantime, some investors are beginning to extend their attentions to broader social issues such as wellbeing, equality and poverty.
In the real estate market, these trends have only started to emerge and the potential of such approaches for the industry, especially beyond the environmental aspect, is yet to be explored. The benefit of values-driven, purpose-driven approaches to the overall business performance is already widely known. The challenge facing the industry now is how to make sure well-intended investment results in actual contributions to social, economic and environmental sustainability.
In this webinar with Social Value Strategist Dr. Eime Tobari, Director of COCREATIF Limited, participants will learn:
· How to identify untapped opportunities to enhance the overall performance of real estate and infrastructure investment
· How to operationalise effectively unlocking of such opportunities
· How to make sure wider benefits for the business performance are achieved
