Turning the inevitable into a business advantage

44% of asset managers want to be in line with ESG criteria, but only 7.7% are considering holistic measures. You can tip the balance with insights from Roger Baumann, COO Global Real Estate at Zurich Insurance, and Jens Mueller, CEO BuildingMinds, from their exclusive leaders’ handbook, part of PwC’s book “ESG management in real estate.”


Yes, net-zero is a huge challenge. But Roger and Jens have the secret sauce of how to break it down into simple steps that enable managers to create impactful, measurable action plans.

And it’s not just theory. Their methods have already withstood the first practical test — together, they reduced the greenhouse gas emissions of Zurich’s real estate portfolio by 20%.
