About this talk

The real estate sector has a pivotal role to play in tackling the climate challenge with the sector being responsible for 39% of all global Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GhG), according to the World Green Building Council. While Impact Investing Strategies have mainly been focusing on Social impact within the real estate industry, this webinar aims at discussing how Core European Real Estate strategies can deliver a positive and measurable climate impact by focusing on the existing stock. Several key objectives in terms of reducing GhG emissions will be addressed in the context of the 2015 Paris Agreement. During the webinar, the different levers that real estate investors may have will be discussed, as well a specific reporting frameworks that can be envisaged to quantify the investor positive impact on assets and to measure the success of reducing GhG emissions and contribution to the low carbon transition.
