To align with our Global Environmental Commitment Statement, Cushman & Wakefield will integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) priorities into our corporate operations as the firm strives to transform the way the world works, shops, and lives. We will focus on creating positive environmental impact in our corporate operations and business services. This commitment will solidify Cushman & Wakefield’s position to be one of the industry leaders in sustainable management practices as a firm and for clients.

GRESB undertakes an annual Real Estate Assessment on behalf of a large group of institutional investors and produces a 2016 report which summarizes information regarding the sustainability performance of property companies, fund managers and developers, and provides unique insights into sustainability practices across the global property industry.

This year’s event will shed light on the latest ESG trends having a significant impact on industry development based on the 2016 GRESB results and what this means for the future of the real estate industry. The program will include insights and best practice case studies by industry experts from leading institutional investors, property companies and sustainability consultants from the region.

“In the last decade, sustainability is progressively becoming a vital part of doing business in any industry. We need to constantly evaluate, improve and stay ahead of sustainability best practices in the global real estate sector,” said Stephen Saul, Managing Director, Cushman & Wakefield Singapore.

“As players in the property business, we believe that the successful long-term future of our company can only be achieved by making a positive impact on the environment, local communities, and the long term value of their assets. We are honoured to partner with GRESB and host this year’s Results Launch.”
