Megatrend sustainability in the real estate industry

This is the first comprehensive practical handbook on the topic of "Environmental Social Governance" (ESG) and its impact on the real estate industry. The sustainability megatrend is still in its early stages in the real estate sector, and there is a lack of standards, practical examples and data. The development is very dynamic and sometimes confusing, and new, complex, requirements and regulations are constantly being added.

The authors – an expert team of economists, lawyers, investors, asset managers and engineers – provide an overview of national and European regulatory requirements as well as current market developments.

They show what role ESG plays not only in the areas of new construction, renovation and real estate management, but also in investment processes and real estate valuations.

Contents:

  • ESG and the real estate market
  • ESG and regulatory environment
  • ESG and real estate management
  • ESG in urban and project development
