ESG in Real Estate
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. Sustainability strategies are stagnating, targets are not being met and there’s no uniformed approach to benchmarking as everyone is doing their own thing. That’s not to criticise organisations’ best intentions but without a uniformed approach to ESG, only confusion and apprehension will continue to remain.

Real estate is one of the largest assets in the world, but it is also synonymous with low liquidity. Tokenization of real estate emerged in the era of real estate 4.0 as technological innovation to counter the low liquidity, long and expensive transaction process, and high entry threshold of the real estate industry. By Fractionalization, tokenization of real estate reduces the required capital that investors need.
