Mishcon de Reya is one of the lead partners on Property Week's Climate Crisis Challenge campaign. In the third episode of the campaign's podcast series, Mishcon de Reya planning Legal Director Nicola Insley considered the relationship between sustainability policy and real estate, alongside Basil Demeroutis, Managing Partner at real estate investment firm FORE Partnership, and Barry Jessup, Chief Executive of mixed-use developer First Base. Matilda Jacobs, Account Manager at Blackstock Consulting, moderated the discussion.
The panel covered a broad range of subjects, including the need to coordinate what has traditionally been a fragmented approach to regulation, why it is essential to consider each part of the ESG equation, and how the government can incentivise and encourage innovation around the retrofit and refurbishment of existing building stock.
