Beyond Returns: Investor-Driven Climate Change & Social Responsibility Priorities
Wednesday, April 7

Today’s non-market investment priorities are a mass of data, reports, meetings and acronyms. For some firms, it’s as simple as putting up a webpage with nice sounding promises but no real action. To others, it’s a serious undertaking with top management buy in and focused attention. Others are still stretching their heads waiting for others to lead the way. But what is clear is: institutional investors are driving real change through requirements that allocators and operators make substantive strides in their work to address ESG priorities. Meanwhile at the other end of the real estate capital markets supply chain, governments are creating metrics with fines at the operator level. With the impacts of climate change and income-inequality manifesting themselves daily in the headlines, this panel addresses how the rubber is meeting the road when it comes to climate change and social responsibility priorities at the investor, allocator and operator levels with the goal of providing strategic-level insight on what kinds of initiatives and programs are working.
