About the talk

Topic: PropTech

When most people think about environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in commercial real estate, many often default to the usual suspects: energy use, water and greenhouse gas emissions. Now, amid the pandemic, social initiatives, such as healthy buildings, flexible work arrangements, racial justice, diversity, inclusion and gender equality are not only front-and-center but are likely far more important to companies seeking to build long term value. Addressing these issues proactively in a fair, open and transparent fashion will create confidence among real estate occupiers, investors, analysts and other key stakeholders while mitigating reputational risk. With the recent call from institutional investors for companies to report on their ESG progress, companies that answer this call will help cement their long-term value in the marketplace.

the title of our talk today is called the rise of s in ESG environment social and governance and just a little bit about how we came up with a topic. I think particularly in the corporate real estate world when we think of sustainability. We think of ESP we think of Wastewater greenhouse gas emissions chillers hack. We think of grosbeaks and all the detailed information. They want we don't necessarily think as much about the s in the Jeep is social and governance issues. And today we're going to talk a little bit about the S issues what they are why they're so important

that what some companies are trying to do about it. So this is just our disclaimer. Of course, this is our opinion on not necessary that goes if EY, but I want to really jump in and talk about ESG. So what's Define ESP is often used interchangeably with the sustainability of corporate responsibility, and I'm not sure that's really accurate anymore. Yes. She just seems to be much bigger than pure sustainability State ability to me is I used to see the chart the timeline down below we start with corporate philanthropy and social responsibility that we kind of got it

stained ability that was about changing our light bulbs and reducing our energy usage measuring and in pledging to reduce. Our greenhouse gasses emissions coming up with renewable energy strategies all good stuff, but it's morphed and there's been a few really important things that have
