The real estate industry needs to change. Why? 40% of global CO2 emissions originate in the real estate sector. 70% of these are produced by building operations, and 30% from construction.
Over the years, the PropTech Innovation Summit has become an internationally recognized event that attracts experts and startups alike to discuss and present solutions that can help fight the climate crises and transform the real estate world.
This year, Union Investment, Townscape, and GERMANTECH received more than 200 applications in the categories of Smart Planning, Sustainable (Re)Construction, and Responsible Use & Management. Fifteen finalists competed at the summit for prize money, a 100k investment, and access to a platform of experts from all areas of the real estate value chain.
I was honored to be once again part of this fantastic event and present solutions that will have a real impact on the industry and help mitigate global emissions dramatically.
