Real Estate Opportunities in the Energy Transition

Global real estate accounts for over 20% of greenhouse gas emissions and approximately 40% of the world’s energy consumption. As a result, the transition to a low-carbon global economy must include efforts to decarbonize the real estate industry – an undertaking that will likely require trillions of dollars of capital.

In this presentation, panelists will discuss the role of real estate in the energy transition, including how real estate investors are integrating sustainability considerations into their investment processes, the growth of government regulation in the space, and opportunities across the real estate and real estate adjacent industries, including emerging technological innovations in construction and building design, to address the social and moral impacts of climate change in a profitable way.

We will be joined by John Carroll, Chief Executive Officer at IonicBlue, Deborah Ginsberg, Partner at TPG Real Estate, and Eric Hinckley, Chief Technology Officer at Sustainable Living Innovations, Inc.
