In November 2022, Human Space presented a discussion with an interdisciplinary panel of specialists that discussed how designing for social impact creates value in the built environment.
ESG has become an important consideration for global real estate. Increasingly, governments, public and private funds, developers and investors are adhering to guidelines, benchmarking and reporting frameworks, supporting the idea that ESG will increasingly affect long-term property value and how we design the built environment. The growing resolve to create a future in which issues of human health, equity, social justice, diversity and inclusion and access to opportunities in our communities is addressed is only gaining steam and will continue to impact the policy-making process.
The invited panel was comprised of subject-matter experts that included Pino Di Mascio (Head of Impact Strategy and Delivery, Dream), Jake Heitland (Place + Growth Manager – Europe, Lendlease), Flora Samuel (Professor of Architecture in the Built Environment, University of Reading) and Kathryn Tombling (Principal, BDP). The session will be moderated by Jesse Klimitz (Principal – North America, BDP and Director of Human Space).
The webinar recording is now available for viewing. Watch it here: On-Demand Webinar – The Value of Inclusion: How design for social impact creates value in the built environment?
