Climate risks and ESG considerations seem to become increasingly important to real estate investment and development decisions.

From long term institutional investors looking at potential asset obsolescence for brownfield developments to opportunistic players hunting for cheaper financing, ESG seems to be touching the entire life cycle of real estate transactions.

With risk return fundamentals incorporating ESG standards, as well as governmental regulations picking up on these topics for the real estate industry, how can investors, developers and lenders safeguard their portfolios while increasing their returns and opening up new opportunities.

Join the global GRI Club members’ community and  discuss such challenges and opportunities through candid peer to peer discussions, in person and behind closed doors with senior real estate investors, owners, operators, developers and lenders.

Leveraging the Uses of Big Data

ESG data collection is not an end to itself, and it won´t mitigate the imminent climate crisis.

We need more optimization and less analysis in our daily work managing real assets. And we need to start now, not in 5 years. However, it is crucial to recognize the processual and competence gaps that are omnipresent today to get there. Let´s face the fact that not everyone is a data scientist or an engineer, and still, budgets need to be allocated appropriately because today´s sustainability is tomorrow´s return. Can data help to augment decision-making in ESG asset management? And what role could gamification play in all this? Let´s discuss!
