Bisnow’s investigation into the decarbonization strategies of the world’s 75 largest real estate owners and managers took six months to complete, a painstaking process designed to hold real estate to account for its claims to have embraced the green agenda.
On this bonus episode of Bisnow Reports, we hear from the project's reporting team of Mike Phillips, Ciara Long and Jacob Wallace to discuss the reporting process, which involved collating hundreds of data points from public records and interviews with companies, many of which were unwilling to engage in a process that would spotlight what they were doing to cut carbon emissions — and what they weren’t.
