The European Green Deal (EGD) is paving the way for stricter regulations and targeted measures towards a zero-carbon economy. The real estate sector is an integral part of the EGD by prioritizing on existing buildings, which generate circa 40% of total energy consumption and 36% of total greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. The goal is to kick-start a major Renovation Wave across Europe focusing on improving the sustainability levels of buildings in line with the principles of circular economy. Despite the overall excitement about the potential benefits of EGD, the implications for the real estate sector are still unclear.
In this webinar, senior professionals share their views on the potential impact of EGD on different real estate stakeholders such as local governments, real estate owners / investors with special focus on REITs, tenants, developers and lenders.
