Keeping Sustainability Front of Mind


As focus moves away from the COVID-19 pandemic, attention falls back upon sustainability and ESG.

The decision of whether to divest or invest is one that challenges many company boards and asset managers.

In Plan Ahead: The Trends to Look Out for in Sustainability we review:

  • How an informed dialogue between landlord and tenant occupier is critical for change

  • ESG as an already key determinant in the real estate transaction process and how valuation already reflects that

  • The number of companies committing to Net Zero targets and the implications for building refurbishment/redevelopment

  • MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards) - by April 2023 the minimum EPC rating of E will be applicable to all leases

  • How landlords and occupiers need to work together to achieve common sustainability goals but there is no legal obligation to share the responsibility

  • What 'stranded assets' are and why we're going to hear a lot more about them

Changes in sustainability are both the biggest opportunity and conversely biggest challenge we face this year and on through the decade.

It brings with it a chance, almost a compulsion, for landlords, occupiers, third party experts to work together in a more transparent way than ever before.
