25 May Curating sustainable real-estate, for the future
For the longest time, real estate was viewed largely as the cornerstone of capital investment and an aspirational asset. Slowly but gradually, the intent has ‘progressed’ to a more sustainability-minded approach with the endeavour to build edifices that are good on the environment and future generations. The viability of leading a more mindful, conscience-driven lifestyle has been an important factor in advancing this transformation.
Covid-19 and its aftermath have altered the outlook for the real estate industry. The promising growth trajectory post the pandemic is an outcome of leading players adopting actionable and attainable climate and environmental sustainability initiatives. For developers who care, sustainability is woven right from the design stage and through to construction. From the raw materials during construction to the energy efficient enablers and from optimisation of water-use to handpicking flora on the project to ensure they need least amount of water; interventions are made across the spectrum.
