Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects are critical differentiators for institutional investors and fund managers when looking at non-listed real estate investments. As a result, it is necessary to keep updated on how the industry is incorporating further best practice and risk mitigation into their investment strategies.
This INREV one-day course provides participants with an overview of current ESG requirements and approaches for non-listed real estate investment from investor, fund manager and occupier perspectives. The course will mainly focus on the environmental and social aspects of sustainability.
The programme covers the continued global challenges underpinning the ESG movement including demographics, climate change and urbanisations as well as the impact of regulation.
It will look at institutional investors’ requirements, the role ESG plays in current investment decisions and reporting requirements.
