40 Percent Symposium
The leading event to make the link between commercial property value, investment, occupation and sustainability
Welcome note from John Pike
Welcome to the 40 Percent Symposium where you can get all the information you need on the impact of sustainability in commercial real estate. Our aim is to provide you with an insight into sustainability strategies. We do this through our thought leadership conferences and events. Our Symposia will provide you with information to support your investment or occupational decisions, helping you to increase both the investment value and occupation rates of your portfolios whilst future proofing those assets.
Increasingly commercial property investors, asset managers and occupiers are facing regulatory, shareholder and customer pressure to embed sustainability into their everyday business strategy. Sustainability needs to be at the core of any property and investment strategy and will boost a company’s environmental credentials.
This year’s Symposia are in London and Frankfurt, next year we will be adding Paris. Additionally through this website we will provide up to date articles, research and thought provoking opinion with contributions from our highly regarded expert board. If you are interested in being at the forefront of sustainability, contribute to future conferences or this website, please register on our site and join us in delivering the next generation of sustainable and valuable properties
I very much look forward to meeting you at a future event.
"The 40% Symposium stands out for its impressive line-up of subject matter experts, as well as the friendly and very relaxed opportunities for meeting and speaking with people. The event provides opportunities to engage with novel thinking and innovation that shape a more sustainable built environment, bringing together individuals at the forefront of research and investment."
