Green Real Estate Investment: Successful Strategies for a Changing Marketplace
This presentation will consider what the future of real estate investment holds, highlighting some of the key trends that are expected to drive further growth in green real estate, counterbalanced by an overview of the key challenges that the sector will need to overcome to make significant progress in this field. We will make reference to the growing body of evidence linking increased investment returns to green real estate assets; with a focus on emerging upside benefits which indicate that the business case for green real estate investment goes beyond downside risk management and future proofing. Finally, we will provide the audience with examples of successful approaches taken by leading investors and fund managers to incorporate green issues into their investment strategies.
