About:

For more than 25 years, green building has provided a framework to define leadership and drive market transformation. The result is thousands of certified green building projects that are more efficient, less polluting, and healthier for their occupants. This track record has earned LEED an important place in the rapidly evolving world of ESG reporting and sustainable finance. LEED-certified assets provide the basis for new exchange traded funds, define use of proceeds for green bonds, and earn points on the GRESB ESG benchmark.

Today, the bar for “green” is rising among institutional investors and property companies and funds. This includes new targets for greenhouse gas emissions and new requirements for supply chain management, accompanied by a growing emphasis on social equity and justice. Moreover, companies, funds, and individual assets are increasingly being asked to back up their aspirations with real world measured performance.

In this session, leaders in commercial real estate discuss the evolution of the industry and share their perspectives on the future of green building design and performance as part of ESG reporting and sustainable finance.

Opening hosted by the Pacific Region.

  • Review changing expectations for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting for real asset companies.
  • Compare the features and requirements of ESG reporting frameworks.
  • Understand the contribution of green building to company-level ESG reporting, including certifications, ratings, risk assessments, and surveys.
