• EVOLVE: THE ESG TRAINING ACADEMY

As part of our mission to drive positive change within the real estate industry, we are highly aware that one of the most effective ways to achieve this goal is for us to share our knowledge and passion.

Our EVOLVE education programme, designed to translate the vocabulary of ESG into everyday language, provides a segmented and accessible pathway, beginning from an introductory course on ESG Fundamentals, through to more complex sessions on issues such as Net Zero and TCFD.

To date we have educated over 1500 individuals through the EVOLVE programme across 40 different countries.
