Building blocks for the low carbon economy

Climate change poses clear and material risks to real estate assets with the potential to impact return profiles. This paper focuses on listed real estate, which historically has lacked appropriate tools to allow investors to assess their exposure to climate risk and to integrate it effectively in their investment strategies. Helping to address this gap, the FTSE EPRA Nareit Green Indexes have been developed with data input from GeoPhy, a specialist data provider, and the European and North American real estate associations, EPRA and Nareit. These indexes provide a sustainability-focused extension to the FTSE EPRA Nareit Global Real Estate Index Series, a leading global series of listed real estate benchmarks which are tracked by over US$340 billion in assets.¹
