Living the good life: how do we build ESG into our residential developments?

February 24, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This React News webinar will unpack the key characteristics of more and less successful approaches so far.

• What are the most effective approaches and strategies we’ve seen from both lenders and developers, versus what are the least effective (or most problematic)?
• Evaluating the factors causing the residential sector to fall behind the commercial sector in sustainable development
• Assessing the role and importance of lender, developer, investor and owner/occupier engagement
• As we near FHS/MEES implementation, more will be demanded of developers and lenders in terms of data, metrics, risk management and governance: how can sustainability credentials be standardised in the future? What does the roadmap/timeframe look like?

The panel will explore views from lenders, developers and industry associations.
