On Friday 16th June we held a webinar, which discussed the recently launched report "Sustainable Value: a common approach to the commercial benefits of sustainability in UK commercial real estate" (click here to read the report).

The webinar began with Sam Carson from CBRE providing an overview of the report, talking about the steering group and some of the insightful discussions that were had in its development, including topics such as common approaches to the capex associated with ESG risks, the role of EPCs, regulations and green certifications.

This was followed by a panel discussion with Imogen Ebbs of Aviva; Guy Glover of Columbia Threadneedle and Charles Golding of RICS, who provided their interpretations of the report.

The report discusses some common sustainability features in UK commercial property and how they relate to property value. The aim of the paper is to suggest more common ways of identifying and reporting common sustainability features to promote alignment across AREF members and the wider UK Commercial Property Market.

Many thanks to the speakers:
