The European Real Estate Society, together with the Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor, are proud to invite you to our seminar.
This first panel introduces climate change and stranding risk, with a focus on their impact on the real estate context. The presentations provide insight of the latest research to estimate the impact on asset values and rent, as well as provide the investor and asset managers perspective on current and future challenges to adapt to climate change and future mitigation requirements. Finally, the CRREM tool is introduced, explaining how to reduce stranding risk and ensure that real estate assets and portfolios are climate change ready.
