Trends & More

 

The real estate industry has a profound impact on our planet by building communities and creating sustainable futures. Its activities shape our urban, commercial and business environments and, as buildings account for 40% of global carbon emissions alone, our industry has a clear responsibility to safeguard the quality of life for generations to come.

The industry is currently undergoing a dramatic transformation as it embraces new digital ways of working. The ongoing pace of urbanisation is also creating challenges when it comes to providing affordable housing: supply continues to fall far short of the ever-growing demand. Societies are also undergoing dramatic change themselves. The population is ageing and greying, which means the environment we build around ourselves needs to be rethought to create a society catering to longer lives.

Alternative investments, crumbling infrastructure, capital market risks, changing demands in logistics and retail, new modes of working, the search for new investment opportunities, and public and private indebtedness – all themes are highly relevant to real estate professionals. Our Trends & More section highlights developments in the industry with a bearing on these and many other relevant topics, providing meaningful insights, valuable business intelligence, the occasional commentary and important pointers from our leading experts.
