Integrating climate risk into listed real estate portfolios

Presented by

Maya Beyhan & Julian Harding (State Street Global Advisors), Jaakko Kooroshy (FTSE Russell)

About this talk

FTSE Russell has licensed to State Street Global Advisors the new FTSE EPRA Nareit Green Index Series for the inaugural State Street CCF Global Green Real Estate Equity Index Fund, which tracks the FTSE EPRA Nareit Developed Green Index. The real estate sector accounts for more than one-quarter of global carbon emissions. According to UN estimates, buildings account for over half of global electricity usage and c. 28% of global carbon emissions. There is also evidence linking better environmental performance to higher asset values, higher occupancy rates, higher rental yield and lower operating costs. Real estate investing has historically lacked the appropriate tools to allow investors to assess their exposure to climate risk and to integrate it effectively in their investment strategies. To help address this gap, the FTSE EPRA Nareit Green Indexes have been designed to allow investors to identify real estate companies with strong sustainability performance. Join experts from FTSE Russell and State Street Global Advisors as they discuss the characteristics of the FTSE EPRA Nareit Green Index and integrating climate risk into listed real estate portfolios.
