Singapore has set out plans to make 80 percent of buildings in the city-state go green by 2030 and in December, Hong Kong said that it would begin requiring finance firms in the city to disclose climate change policies by 2025, with both of these moves signifying that sustainability is rapidly moving to centre stage in real estate and finance in Asia.
These government programs, which extend to jurisdictions around the region, have already helped to double the volume of ESG-linked bonds issued this year, bringing that total to $69 billion, with green bonds accounting for 70 percent of that total, and sustainability-linked funding another 20 percent.
To better understand how real estate fund managers, developers and service providers are adapting to the growing imperatives for conservation and incentives for efficiency, Mingtiandi is launching the first-ever survey of sustainability in Asia’s real estate industry, and inviting our readers to participate.
You may take the 10-question survey here.
The survey dives into what steps companies are taking to incorporate sustainability into their businesses, attempts to measure the depth of those commitments and explores the benefits that real estate firms in the region expect to achieve through going green.
The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 18 June and the results of the study will be published in a special report, as well as being shared in the upcoming Asia Sustainable Real Estate Forum, which is coming your way in August on MTD TV.
We look forward to seeing your responses and thanks for your participation.
