Unpacking Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Practices for Real Estate




Event description

Best practices for REITs, developers, owners, operators and investors

Consuming about 40% of the world’s energy and accounting for over 20% of greenhouse gas emissions, the real estate industry is among the leading contributors to climate change, but it also has the potential to help achieve the targets set by the Paris Agreement. Real estate consumers are no longer solely focused on price – they now consider supply chain transparency, green tech availability and values-based property development practices as part of their decision-making process. In this webcast, Grant Thornton’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) practice will moderate a discussion with leaders from GRESB (the global ESG benchmark for real assets), the Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRIT) and Nuveen Real Estate. The panel will discuss the emergence of ESG in the real estate industry today, and how real estate companies can adopt ESG practices to better position their portfolios for the future.
