Office buildings that win international green awards, such as LEED recognition, have become the top choices for companies in the post-pandemic world thanks to the advantages they offer in terms of health, safety, and comfortable working environments.
The real estate sector contributes a significant amount to global greenhouse gas and carbon emissions. However, an unexpected Covid-related shift towards remote and hybrid work coupled with a heightened focus on climate change and investor interest in environmental, social, and governance initiatives have set the stage for the next phase of growth in non-residential green buildings. Office and mixed-use developers have transformed the industry with sustainability and green building initiatives and are poised to accelerate their impact post-pandemic.
Grade-A offices – like Capital Place in Hanoi – have gained momentum this year as tenants begin to make meaningful assessments of new hybrid working arrangements.
Every worker wants an office that inspires productivity, but the past two years have made many aware that they deserve more in terms of an avenue for creative pursuits, meaningful collaborations, and a space to breathe amidst the constant action.
