Meeting’s Overview 

The relationship between Infrastructure and its impacts on the environment has been propounded and debated in various feedback loops. While it is a part of the problem, more importantly, it is very much the solution to address the climate crisis, playing a pivotal role in shaping a better, more sustainable future.
In this dynamic environment, how can real estate developers/investors ensure that the existing and future assets are insulated from climate change, the push for carbon neutrality, and cost-driven inflation?

Discussion Leaders

The discussion will touch on

Poised for growth: India is set to become the world’s fastest-growing major economy this year. As millions of Indians move to cities in search of high-quality jobs, construction will be a major driver of long-term growth. India’s urban population is expected to hit 525 mn by 2025 and 600 mn by 2036, a rapid increase from the current 400 million, which will require new housing and infrastructure to be constructed. Research suggests that more than half of the residential and commercial building stock expected in 2030 is yet to be built. Cognizant of this, India’s construction industry is now striving to do even more to enable emission reduction across the entire value chain.

Climate risk is a financial risk: Global average temperatures have risen more than 1°C since pre- industrial times, resulting in more extreme weather events. The impact of adverse climate conditions on physical assets is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore and has become a critical factor that real estate leaders should start planning for with a sense of urgency.

The rise in construction costs: Over the last couple of years, developers’ average construction cost has risen 10-12%, due to higher input costs. At the same time, demand elasticity means that the cost increase has not been passed on to the end consumer. What operational and technological changes are developers adopting to optimize costs?  What alternate procurement models are being explored? Will a shift in urban policy and change in FSI help?

A sustainable built environment is key: Today, there is a huge opportunity for the real estate sector in India to come together and address the key economic and reputation risks caused by climate change and to partner in building a nation that is resilient, sustainable, and future-proof.
