It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the effects of climate change. Forest fires, rising sea levels and a global increase in temperatures underline the impact human activity is having on the planet. It is estimated that the built environment is responsible for almost half of all global CO2 emissions.
This is moving the green finance agenda forward at a significant rate.
Increasingly, commercial real estate investors across the globe are seeking alternative green financing options which support and contribute to positive environmental and or social objectives. As a result there is a growing appetite for formalised environmental and or socially responsible debt instruments among the commercial real estate debt market.
