The presentation will cover the top five Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) themes that will shape the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) landscape in 2023 and beyond. From rental premiums for green buildings to the transformation of existing structures, organisations are prioritising sustainability in their operations.

Relationships between landlords and tenants are being redefined, as strategic alliances pave the way for innovative solutions to complex challenges. As part of the social impact of real estate, firms prioritise holistic wellbeing to enhance workforce resilience and drive long-term success. CREs are increasing their attractiveness by building connected communities, offering elements of high energy districts and flight to quality.

The governmental regulations on climate risk influences ESG in CRE, propelling organisations to accelerate initiatives that improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and adapt to a changing climate. Real estate is ever evolving, but through thoughtful management, companies will be able to stay ahead of the curve.
