ESG Reporting, A nice to have or a must have? Unlocking sustainable value through ESG

esg Feb 09, 2022

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:

  • What added value does preparing an ESG report have for your investment, portfolio, organization and people.
  • What role do SFDR, ESG and GRESB reports play.
  • What is the connection / overflow between the 3.
  • How do you determine the "S" in ESG and why is it taking off?
  • How do you secure through ESG reporting the investments made.
  • What role do the WELL (re)certifications play in the (rental) contracts and the ESG report and how do you safeguard them?
  • What role do High Performance / smart and data driven buildings play now and in the future.

 

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.
