What do you think of when you hear the words 'sustainability' or 'being green'? Does it conjure images of long-haired hippy-types wearing brown sandals and hugging trees? Saving polar bears? Or recycling Coke cans and yoghurt pots? Environmental issues are often misunderstood and seen as someone else's problem. Worse, they are even ignored and considered to be irrelevant to modern business.
The reality couldn't be further from the truth: consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is now a key part of modern property management and makes good business sense.
