Going Beyond Green: The Evolution of Sustainability Post COVID-19

“Change is in the air. It’s in the open roads, the sometimes-smogless sky, and the number of people across the globe seeing stars for the first time in years.”

In a recent article for Value Walk, I offer my take on market shifts resulting from the watershed events of the last few months, and invite investors to adapt their portfolios for maximum gain.

I emphasize the following:

  • Sustainability is driving decisions — investors and tenants alike are asking for GRESB and WELL Building Standards reports.
  • Employers return to office are seeking changes that prioritize the health of their teams — tenant-driven adaptations that don’t tax the environment will be rewarded across the market.

 

As many investors face new purchase decisions in the next few quarters, the opportunity is there to benefit from the shifts in the market and to play a part in keeping these star-studded skies.
