APAC Green REIT Index – a new tool to capture hidden opportunities

The property sector is responsible for approximately one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions and 40% of global energy consumption. This development drives growing interest from global real estate investors to integrate sustainability into their investment process. The Solactive CarbonCare Asia Pacific Green REIT Index, co-developed by Carbon Care Asia and Solactive, is the first of its kind to close this gap and allow investors to identify companies which demonstrate strong sustainability performance and commitments to meet the carbon reduction targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement.

This issue explains why green buildings become an attractive asset class and how this Index works to explore the potentials of investing in the greenest REITs in the Asia Pacific region.
