The global pandemic has likely accelerated demand for impact investing as good governance, balancing stakeholder needs and a focus on long-term value generation become even more important to investors and society. More than any other sector, the built environment shapes people’s lives. The effect real estate can have on people and their home and working lives is far greater than most other areas of commercial activity. This makes real estate a natural home for impact investing. Successful impact investing in real estate requires integrating a comprehensive impact management system into the real estate investment process to achieve impact goals and financial returns. European real estate offers many opportunities for impact investments but taking advantage of them requires international and local solutions.
