whitePaper | October 14, 2022

ESG is seriously lacking structure. This may not be ground-breaking news, but frustrations are not tempering any time soon. In the real estate sector specifically, a place where scrutiny is feverishly increasing, there is a real lack of consensus as to what an ESG integrated portfolio actually looks like.

With so many new priorities, a natural question to ask when evaluating any new product is how the returns on that investment (ROI) compare to those of other potential products. Smart workplace solutions, which encompass hardware and software solutions to optimize the physical workplace, streamline ways of working in the office, and create a positive workplace experience, have become increasingly cost-effective but can still represent a significant investment.

The Energy Challenge in Commercial Real Estate

whitePaper | October 27, 2022

Commercial real estate used to be an ‘easy’ investment, with long-term leases and stable, predictable ROI. But the office real estate landscape has profoundly changed.
