For 8 years in a row, the Real Estate team at CMS has produced an annual Thought Leadership report based on major pieces of industry research, addressing key issues facing the real estate sector and exploring market trends.
From pandemic to purpose
As we welcomed in a new year, the defining issue of the next decade looked set to be sustainability. The rise of ESG – Environment, Social, Governance – was no flash in the pan; it was now a guiding principle for global investors and institutions. Responding to the climate crisis was a priority. And then COVID-19 changed everything.
CMS’ real estate and real estate finance teams recently hosted a panel discussion exploring some of the trends, opportunities and challenges facing the real estate sector in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) sphere.
