SIOR Europe is pleased to invite you to an exclusive event in London, England on Thursday, 2nd December 2021, from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm.

Members and guests will meet at The Mount Pleasant Mail Centre (Clerkenwell) on Phoenix Place and have a private tour of this renovated site. In addition to work taking place on the sorting office itself, the planning permission includes developing part of the site with new homes, shops, offices, restaurants and public space.

All will then make their way to The In and Out Naval & Military Club (N° 4, St James's Square, London SW1Y 4JU) for drinks in the bar, preceding lunch. 

During the private dining room experience over lunch, our guest speaker Bill Blain will share some of his thoughts, charm and charisma.

Bill Blain is a leading market commentator. He’s spent 35 years in markets in fixed income and alternative assets, and produces a daily market commentary; the Morning Porridge, which has upset regulators, central bankers, politicians, companies and supranational institutions. Navigating the fine line between common sense and being rude, Bill’s market insights are a must-read for over over 5000 direct recipients of the Porridge, and many more who read it syndicated.

There will be time to relax, network and develop business opportunities with SIOR colleagues and guests.

The much-awaited Cities, Regions and Built Environment Day took place on 11 November, rounding off two intensive weeks of COP26 and highlighting the big role that the built environment – which is responsible for 40% of carbon emissions – can and must play in delivering on global net zero ambitions.

We were encouraged to see a number of notable take-aways, announcements and conversations emerging from the day’s focus on our industry.


The SIOR Europe Chapter AGM will take place virtually on Zoom at 11am GMT and 12 noon CET on Friday, 28th January 2022.

Registration is necessary. Please email admin@sioreurope.com for further details.

More information about the event will be published in due course.

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.


Tuesday, 23rd November 2021, 18:00 CET, 17:00 GMT, 12 noon ET, 09:00 PT

With the built environment accounting for 40% of global carbon emissions, COP26 has brought into sharp focus the importance of swift and affirmative action by the real estate sector, in order to reduce its climate impact.

SIOR Europe is hosting this webinar, bringing together members and industry experts to discuss global climate issues, examine the outcomes of the COP26 summit and identify solutions for the industry.

More and more organisations in the commercial real estate market are aware of their impact on the environment and making business decisions in line with ESG (Environment, Society, Corporate Governance) values. They know they need to reduce carbon emissions, use more renewable energy sources and be more sustainable in the race to net zero.

The webinar will explore: what can we do as an organisation? And as an industry? How do we reduce our carbon footprint? What should we expect from developers in the context of the new COP26 plans? How can we encourage other players in the market, including our clients, business partners and employees, to join the movement? And most importantly, how will the real estate world change by 2030?

This event is open to SIOR members and anyone with an interest in the commercial property sector, office and industrial & logistics, in Europe. We want many voices, views and opinions so please secure your place now and be part of the conversation

Participants

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.
