The drastic impact of COVID-19 and the deepening of related crises inspired the World Economic Forum’s global real estate community to rethink real estate and align on a vision of buildings and cities that are liveable, sustainable, affordable and resilient. With leadership from CEOs and input from their senior executives, this vision, along with a set of enablers and case studies, comprises this report.
The Framework described in this Insight Report provides a set of enablers, including accelerating digitalisation and innovation to address everything from construction costs to the occupant’s experience, including:
- upskilling and attracting workers with specific talent and knowledge of digitalisation and sustainability
- demonstrating clear, value-proof business cases for investment in technology, sustainability and affordable housing
- engaging stakeholders, both across the industry value chain and with the local community.
