The real estate market has shown that certified buildings with strong ESG performance now command higher rental values and lower vacancy rates. New buildings must now comply with current regulations and construction standards around the globe to ensure good ESG scores. However, the real estate market still doesn’t have a standardized methodology to assess the gain or loss in asset value as a result of its environmental performance.
This session will explore how environmental performance can be incorporated into valuation and how this can be used to inform real estate retrofitting strategies. Focusing on tools such as CRREM and variables including emissions and energy intensity, the panellists will discuss how investors can anticipate and avoid asset value loss due to inaction and non-compliance.
