    “As a society we are in a phase of transition, and there are a number of megatrends that will influence the real estate investment sector in the near future, including seismic shifts in geopolitics, demographics and technology. As part of our responsible property investment programme, we focus our attention on issues most material to the real estate sector and analysing whether markets are pricing sustainability risk accurately, including externalities, in their measurement of real estate values and worth.” During 2016-17 our focus has been on the role of real estate in achieving a transition to a low-carbon economy, and in particular the role it can play in scaling up finance for energy efficiency. Real estate also has an important role in helping to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and we strongly believe that developing and disseminating Positive Impact Finance approaches will be an important delivery mechanism. These are reported in our 2017 Responsible Property Investment report: “From intentionality to outcomes: Positive impact investment in real estate”

    Stewardship

    The current economic and financial models used by the investment industry need to be reconsidered if the targets outlined in the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement are to be reached, according to a new report entitled Navigating low-carbon pathways from Hermes Investment Management. Doing so is the only way to address the valuation threats climate change poses to investment strategies, which is part of investors’ fiduciary responsibility to their clients. The report points to the important role investors have to play in closing the emissions gap between current commitments and the levels required to deliver a world in which global warming is limited to 2°C or less. However, while significant progress has been made, many investors have yet to fully integrate climate change into their investment decision-making processes and stewardship of companies and other assets.
