Sustainable Real Estate: Translating ambitions into action
We live in an age of heightened awareness that is pushing businesses worldwide towards responsible behaviour. We see a growing trend and increase in demand of sustainable and green spaces, as people become more environmentally conscious. Our latest survey of over 550+ Asia Pacific occupiers and investors combined, reveals that 83% of occupiers and 78% of investors have accepted that climate risk poses a clear financial risk. This creates an undeniable urgency to weave sustainability into corporate growth strategies. Corporate adoption of net zero carbon commitment is even set to double in Asia Pacific by 2025. Find out more on how sustainability has now gone mainstream and how real estate is the key to realising sustainability ambitions.
Sustainability comes up among the top three considerations for corporates when leasing real estate.
70% of occupiers are willing to pay a premium to lease sustainability-certified buildings and believe it is justifiable to help meet decarbonisation targets
72% of investors believe that green certifications drive higher occupancy, rents, tenant retention and overall higher value for the asset
Shortage of green buildings will force landlords to consider asset refurbishment which is going to have the largest capital deployment from investors in the next three years.
