Real estate has a large impact on land use both within and outside urban environments but has not often considered biodiversity as part of its business or climate strategy. However, restoring natural systems can provide up to 30 percent of necessary global emissions reductions. Nature-positive development that manages and restores the natural environment while also supporting essential human services is key to resilient and sustainable real estate, protecting material supply chains, and preserving building value, while also achieving ambitious net zero carbon goals. This panel, featuring ULI and Jacobs research on the intersection of real estate, climate mitigation, and biodiversity, will highlight best practices and case studies from leading building owners and developers.
