Corporate social responsibility is becoming increasingly important in real estate. New regulations, rising operating costs and growing scrutiny from stakeholders are among the factors creating fresh challenges and opportunities.
These issues are more and more at the forefront of corporations’ agendas – and not just because of the complex regulatory and reporting obligations. There is also a substantial impact on a company’s image and risk management, not to mention its relations with its customers, employees, employee representative bodies and shareholders.
