Description

Net zero is a growing tool for the CRE industry to address the climate crisis and meet stakeholder demand for public action. Climate change is increasing stakeholder pressure on the commercial real estate industry to reduce its carbon footprint. CRE firms are working hard to modify and adapt their businesses, employing a range of strategies to move towards a more sustainable future. One of ways some CRE firms are addressing the climate challenge is by adopting a net zero carbon commitment, where a company strikes a balance between greenhouse gases generated and removed.

The movement toward net zero raises a host of interesting questions. Join MBA and industry experts to learn more about net zero. This webinar will focus on the various factors at play as the industry increasingly incorporates net zero into business strategies. Participants will receive a snapshot of how net zero is working its way into the fabric of commercial real estate in the U.S. and around the world.
