The purpose of the case studies is twofold: to support further development of market transparency; and to provide a foundation to promote and distribute quality education and information on sustainability aspects of professional standards in the non-listed real estate industry.

These are published in an ANREV-branded document format. Content must not be advertorial in nature although due accreditation is given to the author (including author's company and logo).

Those case studies have been established under the auspices of the ANREV Sustainability Working Group to oversee the pipeline of papers, select topics and provide feedback.

  • The Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor (“CRREM”) initiative aims to “make decarbonization measurable” by providing a free-use Excel tool as well as decarbonization pathways which could serve as a benchmark. The CRREM pathways allow the industry to set science-based carbon targets aligned with requirements of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 2°C or better 1.5°C by 2050 and effectively measure the transitional risk of climate change for individual assets and portfolios.

    The objective of this pilot was to test the tool and relevant pathways for Asia Pacific assets in order to help asset owners, developers, and managers to adopt the pathways as best practice in the region.
