Report Summary:

Scorched: Extreme Heat and Real Estate outlines how extreme heat will affect the real estate and land use sectors and highlights the leadership and the potential positive impact of the real estate sector in implementing “heat-resilient” building designs and land uses. The report provides an overview of extreme heat’s connections to the built environment and an in-depth discussion of heat mitigation and adaptation strategies related to building design, building materials, green infrastructure and public space design. These strategies can “future-proof” real estate in vulnerable markets; lower operations and management costs; improve tenant and occupant experience; and otherwise differentiate a real estate project.

Real estate sector investment in extreme heat management could be especially meaningful in Asia Pacific markets where climates are historically hot and changing rapidly; megacities amplify urban heat dynamics; and a significant number of people are vulnerable to heat-related impacts.
