The impending green divide: Supply deficit of sustainable workplaces in Asia Pacific

The supply deficit of net-zero carbon buildings in Asia Pacific is expected to widen as 2030 net-zero targets loom

October 25, 2023

Sydney, Singapore, and Melbourne rank among the top three cities in Asia Pacific’s race towards a net-zero carbon (NZC) built environment by 2050, according to JLL’s Sustainable Offices City Index.

However, even these cities are set to experience an undersupply of NZC office stock in the next five years, based on our analysis of future demand and supply.

The index offers further insights into how APAC cities stack up against one another in green-certified Grade A office stock, the climate change vulnerability of buildings, government initiatives to foster sustainability, and factors influencing progress towards green built environment targets.

To better understand APAC’s NZC built environment, take a closer look at our latest report which examines these key questions:

  • Which cities have the highest level of undersupply of NZC office buildings?
  • What measures are governments implementing to grow their NZC building stock?
  • Where is the pressure to improve environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance coming from?
  • What benefits do owners and investors gain from prioritising NZC buildings?
