ESG in Real Estate, Hospitality and Construction

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) insights for organizations focused on reframing the future of their real estate, hospitality and construction planning.

Sustainable and measurable ESG initiatives are fast becoming the keys to unlocking an organization’s long-term value. As capital and talent shift from organizations that only create value for their shareholders to those that create value in the long term, across a broader group of stakeholders—including employees, consumers, suppliers, communities, government, investors and shareholders—a focus on ESG strategies will continue to gain momentum in the market.

At EY, we have applied the long-term value framework and ESG strategies to help define and measure our ambition to build a better working world. A few key examples of our ongoing efforts include our work with The Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism (EPIC); our recent participation in the development of ESG-related Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics in partnership with the World Economic Forum International Business Council; becoming carbon neutral at the end of 2020, and our commitment to being carbon negative in 2021 and reaching net zero in 2025.

We believe this makes us uniquely suited to help organizations shape, execute, measure and report on their ESG journey, and invite you to connect with us to learn more.
