IPE Real Assets: How to reach net zero carbon in real estate by 2040
On Wednesday 17 March, IPE Real Assets, in partnership with Nuveen, hosted the webinar, “How to reach net zero carbon in real estate by 2040.” Real estate is one of the world’s largest producers of greenhouse gas emissions, making the road to net zero carbon difficult to navigate.
And yet, Nuveen Real Estate plans to be net zero carbon by 2040 – ten years ahead of when the World Green Building Council states it is necessary to meet the Paris Accord.
Abigail Dean, Nuveen Real Estate’s Head of Strategic Insights, discusses their pathway to net zero carbon and shares best practices for achieving this goal. GRESB’s Climate Change Specialist, Erik Landry, joins Abigail to explore the need for reliable ESG information, standardised global benchmarks and collective action in the real estate industry.
Date: March 17, 2021
Speakers: Abigail Dean and Erik Landry (GRESB)
