Institutional real estate investors across the globe are implementing environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles as part of their overall investment approach, as they embrace the credo of "doing well by doing good."
ESG Means Business, Fall 2018 is a special report published by Institutional Real Estate, Inc. in cooperation with GRESB and is a follow-up to ESG Means Business and ESG Means Business Spring 2018. This 20-page, free report focuses on resilience and its growing importance when considering the long-term viability and value of current assets and future investments.
Having resilience has become an integral and necessary part of managing risk and for the sustainability of real assets. The ticking sounds that real estate executives hear louder every year are the advance of serious issues that have become part of the fabric of society: climate change and the increase in frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, sea-level rises, population growth, urbanization and terrorist threats, among others. As long-term holders of real estate, institutional investors are particularly vulnerable to changing conditions.
