Not all technological advances are just about how we design, build, refurbish and operate buildings to ensure they are truly sustainable.
Often those improvements do not happen because of financial constraints.
With leading lenders driving sustainability through innovation in real estate finance we need to connect with clients and lenders already engaged and who have bought in the process.
We also need to make use of existing legislation initiatives such as the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards and the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme to work with our clients to realise the energy and carbon savings at their disposal and facilitate innovative finance approaches to deliver them.
Leading lenders are now exploring new opportunities that go well beyond traditional risk management through sustainability initiatives that drive new business, strengthen customer relationships and improve the data lenders hold on the buildings which they have underwritten.
