Investor groups collaborate for Australian launch of new action framework on sustainable real estate

13 May 2016

Today a unique coalition of global investor and property groups will launch the  Sustainable Real Estate Investment – Implementing the Paris Climate Agreement: An Action Framework in Australia for the first time.

Five of the world’s largest investor networks and RICS have come together, supported by the Global Alliance for Building and Construction, to publish a concise, actionable framework for Real Estate investors to help them make sense of existing Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) guidance and to accelerate their integration of ESG and climate risks and opportunities into investment decisions.  The guide sets out a range of measures to improve returns or better protect the future value of real estate investments through application of an ESG and climate change management approach.
