How to navigate through the ESG jungle to define and implement a future-proof organization

Over the past years, the relevance of real estate funds with an ESG-focus has increased. While some players managed to establish themselves successfully as sustainable Real Estate Investment Managers (REIMs), others only did little to prepare their organizations for this shift.

However, one thing is clear: REIMs must react now to create a profound basis for their future business.

These questions go way beyond regulatory considerations.
