Unlocking a Retrofit Revolution: Policy, Finance and Regulation
With the built environment driving close to 40% of global carbon emissions, green real estate is an unequivocal way to abate the climate crisis – and a key priority for future investments. Unsustainable buildings are becoming undesirable and tough to finance and this is driving demand for new or retrofitted buildings. From large institutional investors to homeowners, there has been a marked shift of interest towards sustainable real estate and the opportunities it presents to capitalize on and future-proof assets. In this session, thought leaders from international NGOs and the banking industry will share their experiences and insights on the decarbonisation of residential real estate around the world.
