Transformation starts here

Over the next two decades we will see big trends converge and turn the world of real estate on its head. To transform - and we mean really transform - we must look at the world, and real estate’s place within it, in a completely new way.

Transformation starts here

Over the next two decades we will see big trends converge and turn the world of real estate on its head. To transform – and we mean really transform – we must look at the world, and real estate’s place within it, in a completely new way.

Translating vision into action

In today’s environment disruption is inevitable. The time is therefore ripe to look beyond the next quarter or year end, and envisage a transformative future for business which responds to the trends re-shaping our world.

We need to look beyond current best practice because the way many of us are doing business is at high risk of becoming obsolete. We rely on fossil fuels, complex international supply chains, supportive planning and taxation regimes in an increasingly politically unstable environment, high demand for purchase and rental property, and a society characterised by excessive consumerism.

Despite this challenging reality there are positive trends emerging too, such as off-site modular construction, the internet of energy, zero-carbon homes, radical corporate and state commitments to electric vehicles, and a rise in circular economy initiatives. How does a business ride this wave of change and not be dragged down by it?

Mapping the path ahead

We are experts in developing and implementing market leading sustainability strategies. Over the last 20 years we have used our Sustainability Journey Model © and Hallmarks of Sustainability Leadership ©, backed up by over 230 criteria, to help companies understand not just where they are now, but where they want to be. Many of these clients are now the sector leaders.

Recently, in response to the major trends affecting real estate, we have held collaborative workshops with these leaders and identified six critical areas in which businesses must transform to change today for a sustainable tomorrow.

Over the coming months we will be sharing more detail about how we can help you achieve each of the following steps to transformation. If you are interested in learning more about how to steer away from routine thinking and behaviours, shed ingrained steady-state habits, challenge core assumptions and even business models to ensure future success, sign up below.
