Greenlighting Green Investment into Green Real Estate


Governments, including China, are now seeking to progressively encourage green investment into their domestic marketplaces. With the expansion of green financial products and market regulation maturation, more funds are projected to be infused into green projects globally and in China. From a global perspective, green investment is progressively being utilised as a catalyst in the transition towards a greener economy because it provides the necessary financial support for the development of green projects, including green real estate.

To preserve energy and natural resources, people, governments and corporations around the world are now cooperating more closely together to generate more sentience, establish ‘green’ associated bodies and associations, ratify laws and provide green investment. Given the built environment’s massive involvement in the diminution of natural resources and hastening of climate change, many more property owners and users, today, are also convivial to the idea of going ‘green’, and many have incorporated green technology on and in their buildings to garner energy and natural resources and/or conserve energy and natural resources.


Ahead in the short to medium term, the built environment will continue to be one of the foremost emitters of greenhouse gases and will be a large contributor to global warming. As a greater number of people, governments and businesses understand this, so more newly built buildings (and existing buildings) around the world, and in China, will be obliged to install green technology systems that both garner and preserve energy and natural resources in the future.

Given the steadfastness of many governments around the world, including the Chinese government, to environmental sustainability and the advancement of green building development, we can anticipate a growing proportion of the built environment to be green in the future.


In conjunction with this, from the commercial real estate viewpoint, as more building owners and space users start to comprehend the many advantages that certified green commercial real estate can provide, including financial benefits, so this mainspring will make sure green commercial office, retail, industrial and hotel space is set to increase in popularity in the years to come.

So as to buttress the development of a sustainable economy, including a green built environment, governments, including China, are now seeking to progressively encourage green financing in their domestic marketplaces. With the expansion of green financial products and market regulation maturation, more funds are projected to be infused into green projects globally and in China.

Lastly, with China’s built environment in mind, as Quasi-REITs and two green CMBSs have been efficaciously launched, we envisage more green real estate projects in the region to exploit of these types of green financing mechanisms in the future.
