From flooding to wildfires, extreme weather events are wreaking havoc across the U.S. on an increasingly regular basis, while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to highlight the integral connections between public health and the spaces where people live, work, and play. Transforming how buildings are constructed and operated, however, offers a path to quickly address both crises. Recognizing this, today the Institute for Market Transformation released the BuildUp 2030 Framework for the Transformation of Real Estate to explore how business leaders—real estate owners, operators, tenants, and investors—can lead the creation of an economically robust, more socially just, and sustainable future.
Informed by a moderated discussion with a coalition of more than 20 real estate professionals over the past year, the new Framework identifies 10 guiding principles for action.
