Sustainability in Australian  Commercial Real Estate.

Uncover the findings from the 2023 REIA Commercial Real Estate Sustainability Report.
Gain insight into the impacts for owners, occupiers and the real estate practitioners.

As Australia starts grasping the realities of a NetZero economy, there are few sectors affected in the same way as Australia’s $1 trillion commercial real estate sector.

Sustainability has emerged as a central pillar of the Australian commercial property industry, fundamentally altering the way businesses design, construct, operate and invest in real estate, and shaping the preferences of tenants and investors.

What are the challenges and strategies to assist occupiers, owners and investors on this journey.
