On Wednesday, 16 June ULI Italy will host their annual conference, this year titled“Social value creation: Role of real estate & ESG criteria approach”. Social value is becoming an increasing priority across the real estate industry, and its quantification is important for its inclusion in a business case. However, a univocal definition and assessment methodology for social value is still to be achieved.

The event will feature the presentation of the ULI research report "Zooming in on the “S” in ESG: A road map for social value in real estate” by Lisette Van Doorn (CEO, ULI Europe), with the aim of analysing the existing social value measurement framework, also providing guidance on social value creation through the real estate sector. Interesting panel discussions will follow, where both Italian and international speakers will share their experience related to the topic, in light of the threats and opportunities highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

La quantificazione dell’impatto sociale sta acquisendo crescente importanza nel settore del real estate e la sua inclusione in un business case richiede l’utilizzo di definizioni ed approcci di quantificazione condivisi.

Mercoledì 16 giugno 2021 ULI Italia vi invita alla Conferenza “Social value creation - Role of real estate & ESG criteria approach”. L’evento vedrà la presentazione del report di ricerca ULI "Zooming in on the “S” in ESG: A road map for social value in real estate” da parte di Lisette Van Doorn - CEO, ULI Europe - con l’obiettivo di analizzare il framework esistente per la misurazione del fattore sociale in un approccio ESG e di fornire linee guida per la creazione di social value nell’ambito del real estate.

Seguiranno tavole rotonde in cui speakers italiani ed internazionali si confronteranno sull’argomento, condividendo la propria esperienza e le proprie opinioni, anche alla luce delle nuove sfide ed opportunità evidenziate dalla pandemia di Covid-19.
