Delivering sustainable returns in real estate investing

Climate change is affecting every sector of our economy, and it remains one of the most important factors to consider when making long term investment decisions. If industries are to become net-zero carbon emitters by 2050, investor capital needs to be managed responsibly to deliver tangible positive impact. Real Assets, specifically commercial property portfolios, present investors with an opportunity to deliver positive environmental outcomes which are aligned to financial performance. 

Sustainability is not a new concept in the property industry, and changes required to ensure the industry is as sustainable as possible are already being made. However, to achieve Net Zero ahead of 2050 requires management that makes intelligent and proactive decisions at scale.

In this guide, Professional Pensions and Columbia Threadneedle Investments explore how the firm maintains the return profile of its funds without compromising on ambitious sustainability goals.
