As real estate exercises some caution in a time of elevated inflation rates, there is hope for renewed investment activity in the latter half of 2023. An expert panel will discuss the outlook for real estate and analyse the developing impacts on regions and sectors around the world. This session will also explore carbon pricing frameworks; how they have begun to be implemented globally, and with widespread expansion, how the pricing of carbon can encourage the transition towards sustainability. This event is open to all members and non-members.
