On Demand Session
UKREIIF 2023: Putting the S in ESG: Building a Sustainable Future with Your Community
17th May 2023
The session was originally recorded at UKREIIF 2023.
This session will be a deep dive into social value as a key driver of improvement in UK Housing.
The last year has been marked by a number of dramatic realisations about the current state of UK housing, namely about what we should we be focussing on to drive improvement. One key part of this discussion is: ESG, especially the social value aspect- but it raises a number of questions too: How is it measured? Who is standardising it? How can we chart people’s lived experiences into hard data? And what kind of policies have been written to help with this?
The panelists looked at macro issues as well as bottom-up initiatives and what must change to drive improvement in the future - truly putting the S in Environmental and Social Governance
