Maarten Frouws, Portfolio Manager European Real Estate, Fidelity International

More than any other asset class, real estate is perhaps most conducive to impact investing. However, investors have questioned just how much of a difference real estate impact strategies can have on accelerating the de-carbonising of our economies. Meanwhile, finding a uniform way to define, measure and verify ‘impact’ can be challenging. Maarten Frouws will outline the opportunity for climate impact investing in real estate and why the current environment is conducive for refurbishing existing assets and bringing them to Net Zero Carbon, while delivering attractive returns for investors.
