  • Financial Analysts of Real Estate
  • Fund managers in Real Estate

While ESG considerations are increasing across all asset classes, they are particularly relevant to real estate. Direct investment in real estate tends to be a long-term investment, allowing more time for material ESG issues to affect the viability and return of the asset. Also, most of the ESG issues for real estate play out at a local level: extreme weather, water stress, and community relations.

Sustainable real estate training identifies and describes the key ways in which ESG factors are financially relevant for real estate assets and portfolios, and how to identify and manage them to mitigate risks and enhance returns. This sustainable real estate course will not leave anything on the table.
