The Real Estate Sector and the Sustainable Development Goals
On Monday the 27th September at 09.00-10.00 Sustainable Finance Lab will host a webinar and present a literature review examining what the real estate sector can do to further align with the Sustainable Development Goals. This is a part of Sustainable Finance Lab’s ambition to be a provider of relevant and applicable research, seeking to bridge the gap between ambition and action and make possible the sustainable transition of the financial market.
Time: Mon 2021-09-27 09.00 - 10.00
Lecturer: Kent Eriksson
The webinar is based on a literature review over the academic literature’s recommendation on how the real estate sector can align with the Sustainable Development Goals, and of how a selection of Swedish real estate companies currently engage with the 2030 Agenda. The literature review was carried out by a KTH graduate and a current KTH student (Josephine Johnzon & Maja Pehrson) in collaboration with Sustainable Finance Lab (Sofia Wikse).
In attendance will be Director of Sustainable Finance Lab Kent Eriksson, who will moderate and lead the webinar. During the webinar the literature review of Swedish real estate’s engagement with the 2030 Agenda and the academic literature’s recommendation of what the real estate sector can do further will be discussed. The report is composed of recommendations of what real estate companies can do to be sustainable, recommendations of indicators to use to measure the progress of accomplishing the 2030 Agenda’s targets (and more), as well as an overview of a selection of Swedish real estates’ companies current sustainability measures.
We hope to see you there!
