With the growth of the "green and healthy" real estate market, there is an increase of new developments within the financial sector. This is not only related to the new European regulations (including the SFDR) but also to the arrival of the Environmental Social Governance (ESG) standard.
A company is free to implement the ESG criteria, but this can be seen as a challenge. BBI can help to answer the following questions:
Fulfilling your "S" criteria with the help of WELL
The social element of ESG issues is the most difficult for many parties to assess. This is in contrast to environmental and governance issues, which are easier to define, have an established track record of market data and are often accompanied by solid regulations. Social issues are less tangible and offer less mature data to demonstrate how they may affect a company's performance
The WELL Building Standard Certification from the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) provides appropriate solutions for this.
Both the WELL Building, WELL Portfolio and the Health Safety Rating are increasingly used worldwide as a tool for sustainability management and reporting. In addition, these WELL certifications provide the right tools to benchmark, monitor and improve assets over the long term (including for the purpose of re-certification) and provide measurable data that is also linked to the "S" within the ESG metric.
BBI helps investors and other stakeholders how to adopt a comprehensive ESG strategy to address social risks and opportunities. Adding the WELL standard increases health and well-being across the ESG landscape through strategies designed to protect and promote the physical, mental and social well-being of employees and stakeholders. As a result, ESG performance reporting becomes a powerful roadmap to monitor, manage, administer and drive multiple issues.
