FOREWORD BY THE EUROPEAN CHAPTER PRESIDENT

As the second week of COP26 comes to a close and with a day dedicated to the built environment, we publish the second part of SIOR Europe’s Members’ and Industry Insights, this time focusing on the experiences of our members across the UK & Europe.

Our report provides insight into how different countries are responding, shares solutions that can be applied elsewhere and demonstrates how climate change is increasingly integrated into the transactional process as a means to add value.


FOREWORD BY THE EUROPEAN CHAPTER PRESIDENT

As COP26 gets underway, SIOR Europe is keen to join the conversation about the focus that the summit brings on
climate change impact to share commentary and advice from our members, all of whom support greater action in
the race to net zero.


Our members have put climate change impact at the heart of their consultancy in response to the market and clients’
increasing ESG requirements and have embedded it into every stage of the property process.


On 5 October 2021, Built Environment Networking brought together the great and the good in the logistics sector to consider how the industry is changing and how best to respond. With a focus on the positive, SIOR Europe was delighted to be a sponsor and support a discussion around the many solutions and opportunities emerging.

The virtual conference covered topics from freeports to climate change and congestion to technology, with speakers from companies ranging from Aberdeen Standard Investments and Europa Capital, to Prologis, St Modwin and Hermes, as well as SIOR’s industry partner TSL, a leader in turnkey capital projects.

It also looked at current and future developments, to the value of circa £6 billion, including those breaking new ground in achieving net zero carbon and those that will provide integrated, strategically located hubs across the UK, driving economic growth.

Key trends emerged:

Our key take out from the conference was a real commitment to driving improvement and best practice on every level. At SIOR Europe, we welcome this with open arms. It is why we exist.

Representing the top advisors in our industry, our members are dealing with multi-million pound/euro deals every day, many in the logistics sector. They have developed solutions to many of the challenges we heard about at the conference, and bring insight from across the UK, Europe and beyond. You can find out more about them and how they can help you here.
