Launched ahead of Cities, Regions and Built Environment Day at COP26, the ‘Beyond the Business Case’ report provides a timely and unique perspective for decision makers to accelerate the built environment’s sustainability transformation; by capitalising on the economic opportunities, addressing risk mitigation and, importantly, embracing the social value case.
The report demonstrates seven irrefutable co-benefits for investing in a sustainable built environment, across both the financial and social value case. In alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, the findings are supported by evidence-based research through innovative case studies.
Real estate alone accounts for 37% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, this report inspires urgency — but urgency with optimism.
