Net Zero Carbon pathway

wind mills
It is widely recognised that in order to meet the objectives of the Paris Accord, buildings will all need to be Net Zero Carbon by 2050, at the latest. We therefore expect to see policies and regulations continue to be introduced across the globe to mandate this outcome. In order to be effectively prepared for this wave of regulation, and to be able to respond to the change in market expectations that will undoubtedly precede and accompany it (and which we already see evidence of), we believe that it is prudent to aim to achieve Net Zero Carbon for the portfolio of real estate that we manage by no later than 2040.

In 2019 Nuveen Real Estate signed the Better Buildings Partnership Climate Change Commitment. This publication fulfils the requirement under that agreement to publish our pathway.
