With more sustainable practices emerging across real estate, regulation is set to play a bigger part in how investment decisions are made and classified.

At a time of even greater focus on Environment Social Governance (ESG) investing, EU taxonomy and Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation are new areas for investors to understand and comply with.

JLL’s Ali Ingram, director and sustainability lead in JLL’s European office investment team, and Tom Branczik, Upstream Sustainability Services director at JLL, to discuss the new regulation and its impact on investors in 2021 and beyond.

 In particular:

  • What does SFDR mean and what’s the timeline?
  • How will EU Taxonomy impact investment platforms?
  • How could SFDR and EU Taxonomy shape investment decisions?
  • How are investors responding to the new requirements?
  • How will new regulation play out at individual asset and property level?
  • How is the broader sustainability drive developing across European real estate?
