Savvy investors are actively preparing for growth opportunities as the demand in real estate is expected to return with a roar. Those who will be most successful are putting ESG at the centre of their agenda. Reputational drivers, increasing demand from borrowers and ESG criteria in lending decisions are directly impact real estate owners are not ‘nice to have’ but a must have in a successful portfolio.
After COP-26, businesses are urged to constitute green finance as business as usual (BAU) and not as an add on to emulate organisations being sustainable. Whilst having 2030, 2040 and 2050 targets are needed, the long-lead time frames and strategy planning are distracting leaders from the presenting and urgent issue. This industry needs to understand that if changes aren’t made in two years’ time, not twenty, there is no chance of being funded, built, or occupied. Only by using green finance can the future value of these assets be protected.
In this roundtable, we will discuss:
• How can organisations implement green finance as BAU?
• What are the consequences of inaction?
• How does green finance impact the liquidity and resilience of the business?
• How are debt providers assessing ESG activities to make lending decisions?
• How do we identify the short-term non-financial reward on sustainable investment?
