Real Estate Investment

Real estate investment managers and institutional investors are increasingly recognizing climate risk as a core real estate issue that is beginning to affect decisions at the market level as well as at the asset level. Our approach to climate risk is based on both market-level and asset-level climate risks as important drivers of long-term real estate value. If a market is not climate resilient, there is a risk of higher insurance rates, lower rent growth, lower debt availability, and higher property taxes to pay for local adaptation measures. If an asset is not climate resilient, capital and value are at risk. These factors will cause risk premiums to increase in many real estate markets, further exposing real estate investors and highlighting the need for a strategic approach to understanding the impacts of climate change.

Some of the way we support real estate companies and investors:

  • Climate risk assessments of real estate assets
  • Portfolio-Level analysis of physical climate hazards – Global
  • Market-level analysis of physical and transition risk – Global
