UNEP FI and PRI joint Webinar: Property investors’ perspective on Climate Change policy

,

Webinar | 17 November 2011, 10:00 – 11:00, CET

The bulk of GHG emissions attributable to buildings emanate from the existing stock. To achieve energy saving and emissions reduction targets in the EU, US and elsewhere, a coherent set of polices is needed to drive responsible behaviors across key stakeholders and over the life-cycle of buildings.
This webinar will review the following important issues, namely;

  • What measures can be introduced to drive mutually reinforcing and responsible behaviors in property investors and managers, brokers and occupiers over the whole life cycle of buildings?
  • Which of these measures have to date proven most successful and which are the most cost-effective?
  • What is the potential for using market-based mechanisms like ‘carbon trading schemes’ in driving responsible behaviors?
  • What role can labeling and metrics play in the policy agenda and what measures can be adopted to accelerate standardization, consistency and comprehensiveness of environmental metrics, labels and standards for buildings?
