Savvy investors are preparing for growth opportunities as the demand in real estate is expected to soar. 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 a must-have for a successful portfolio.
After COP26, businesses are being urged to implement green finance as business as usual. While having 2030, 2040 and 2050 targets are necessary, the time frames and strategy planning are distracting leaders from the urgency surrounding the issue. Unless changes are made in two years’ time, there is no chance of buildings being funded, built or occupied. Only by using green finance can the future value of 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 affect the liquidity and resilience of a 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?
