About this talk

Real estate is one of the world’s largest producers of greenhouse gas emissions, making the road to net zero carbon difficult to navigate. And yet, Nuveen Real Estate plans to be net zero carbon by 2040 – ten years ahead of when the World Green Building Council states it is necessary to meet the Paris Accord. Abigail Dean, Nuveen Real Estate’s Head of Strategic Insights, discusses their pathway to net zero carbon and shares best practices for achieving this goal. Highlights include: – A building-specific approach – An enterprise-wide pathway – Local and regional insights from around the globe – The need for industry collaboration and innovation – Net zero carbon’s challenges and ambiguities Measuring, reporting and validating progress to net zero carbon is one of those challenges. GRESB’s Climate Change Specialist Erik Landry joins Abigail to explore the need for reliable ESG information, standardised global benchmarks and collective action in the real estate industry.
