Sustainable real estate: India’s response to a greener future
Sustainability goes mainstream for occupiers in India and real estate is at the core of it
JLL conducted a research study with 550+ corporate real estate leaders in Asia Pacific (99 occupiers and 76 investors with relevant India real estate exposure) and select the end-user demographic to get a 360-degree perspective on how decision-makers and end-users are approaching their sustainability ambitions and turning them into reality while leveraging real estate.
The results highlighted how sustainability is now a mainstay in India and not just a statement but a purpose that will guide the future.
- 9 in 10 respondents in India believe the link between CRE and sustainability is a board level agenda.
- 7 in 10 occupiers surveyed have carbon emission targets as part of their corporate sustainability strategy.
- 7 in 10 are willing to pay a premium to lease green-certified buildings.
- Both occupiers and investors agree that real estate is a game-changer in achieving net-zero carbon goals.
