Real Asset Live, Live Online Event: UK Timezone | 7th May | 09:30 – 10:30
Will COVID-19 act as an accelerator or as a hurdle to ESG strategies? A comprehensive ESG Strategy is considered an essential requirement for a sustainable business, demanded by investors, clients and tenants. Once marginalised, environmental, social and corporate governance policies are an indispensable part of real estate management. What is the influence of the current health crisis?
ESG, the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment, are also the criteria that can determine future financial performance. Regulation from above and pressure from below, community engagement and scientific evidence are all combining to put ESG issues on the map. Political pressures to address climate change are increasing, and investors and managers must step up their efforts to follow suit. Will the pause in travel, both international and daily commutes, have a major or temporary influence? What does this mean for the sector?
Resilience will be a key topic moving forward, not just from climate change but also in terms of wellness. Companies that are proactive are likely to reap rewards in future, but where can they start? How can effective ESG data management help? Technology is playing an increasingly important role in collecting and analysing data, benchmarking and planning a strategy. Soft factors like wellbeing are taking centre stage in all property sectors, from residential to office to logistics. What are the prospects? And what the main challenges for investors and landlords?
