New Report: The Real Estate Sector and the Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable Finance Lab is very happy to share our latest report: The Real Estate Sector and the Sustainable Development Goals. A literature review examining what the real estate sector can do to further align with the Sustainable Development Goals. This report is part of Sustainable Finance Lab’s ambition to be a provider of relevant and applicable research, seeking to bridge the gap between ambition and action – to make possible the sustainable transition of the financial market.

The literature review is composed of recommendations of what real estate companies can do to become sustainable as recommended by the academic literature, recommendations of indicators to measure the progress of accomplishing the 2030 Agenda’s targets (and more), as well as an overview of a selection of Swedish real estates’ companies current sustainability measures.

The literature review examines how the real estate sector can align with
the Sustainable Development Goals, and provides an overview of indicators to
measure progress, and on how a selection of Swedish real estate companies are
currently engaging with the 2030 Agenda. The literature review was carried out
by KTH graduate Josephine Johnzon and current KTH student Maja Pehrson in collaboration with Sustainable Finance Lab Sofia Wikse.

In September, Sustainable Finance Lab hosted a seminar in connection with
this report. The main findings of the report was presented by KTH graduate and one of the authors behind the report Josephine Johnzon. In attendance was also Director of Sustainable Finance Lab Kent Eriksson, who talked about Sustainable Finance Lab’s ambition in relation to this report and beyond. The webinar was also recorded and can be watched
