“In terms of what is ‘green’ or ‘sustainable’, certification such as BREEAM plays a central role in ensuring that funded real estate assets under these propositions meet the right standards.”

David Willock, Managing director and head of ESG finance, corporate and institutional coverage at Lloyds Bank.

“…A holistic scheme like BREEAM proves its worth by covering a broad range of environmental, social and governance issues at individual building level and, as it is monitored by a third party, it helps to make assessments credible and to verify sustainability claims…”

Derk Welling, Senior responsible investment and governance specialist at APG Asset Management.
