New global study finds COVID-19 accelerating investments in ‘healthy buildings’

by Released

A new survey of many of the world’s leading real estate investors finds that 92 percent of respondents expect demand for “healthy buildings” to grow in the next three years, a compelling signal of the direction the real estate sector is heading. This finding, among others, is captured in a report titled A New Investor Consensus: The Rising Demand for Healthy Buildings – a comprehensive health and wellness study of global real estate investment managers and stakeholders representing aggregate AUM of $5.75 trillion and portfolio investments in real estate totaling approximately $1.03 trillion.

Coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), the Center for Active Design (CfAD), and BentallGreenOak (BGO), the study defines healthy buildings as those optimized for occupant health and safety through a mix of siting, design and operational strategies that measurably improve physical, social and mental health indicators.
