Report Summary:

The report is an annual publication that first launched in 2021, is an opportunity for ULI to share insights from member experts on the key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues that will impact strategic decision-making each coming year.

In late 2021, ULI’s Greenprint Center for Building Performance interviewed members of the ULI Americas Sustainable Development Council, ULI Asia Pacific Resilient Cities Council, and ULI Europe Sustainability Council to inform an “outlook” for 2022: What sustainability topics and issues are on the rise, why do they matter, and what should the industry do about it? Based on the knowledge shared by these experts, Greenprint in collaboration with Ferguson Partners identified five issues that will shape real estate decision-making in the months ahead and beyond:

  1. Advancing the net zero agenda
  2. Navigating the reporting and measurement landscape
  3. Confronting climate risk
  4. Prioritizing existing buildings
  5. Focusing on building materials

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria no longer constitute a niche opportunity but are a fundamental responsibility for companies to be competitive in today’s global markets. The importance of tackling this together cannot be underestimated.
