In our first View from Private Markets newsletter we set out Federated Hermes’ approach to financing the carbon transition in commercial property.

The decarbonisation of the real estate sector is a challenge society must address to achieve a net-zero economy.

  • Real estate accounts for 39% of global greenhouse gas emissions and beyond property owners and governments, lenders have a vital role to play in funding the carbon transition.
  • Energy efficiency will drive retrofits and refurbishments to bring commercial property across Europe up to standard.
  • Federated Hermes real estate pathway to net zero focuses on energy efficiency gains and energy usage reductions.
