Exclusive visit to the UK's busiest postal sorting office, The Mount Pleasant Mail Centre in Clerkenwell has undergone major changes over the years and we are privileged to be allowed to visit.

Lunch at The In and Out Naval and Military Club

Including A Talk by Bill Blain, author of The Morning Porridge.

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.

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

Chair

• Greg Borel, Managing Partner of climate change and sustainability consultancy Ampersand Partners and CUBE

Participants

As COP26 gets underway this weekend, bringing together parties from across the world for a climate summit that aims to ensure we secure global net zero by the middle of the century and keep 1.5 degrees within reach, we here at SIOR Europe want to show our support. We will be sharing guidance about how real estate can make a positive, transformative contribution.

The European Chapter of the Society for Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR Europe) stands for excellence, best-in-class advice and outstanding results. It represents the top advisors in our industry, who drive multi-million pound/euro deals every day.

In response to the market and clients’ increasing ESG requirements, our members have put climate change impact at the heart of their consultancy and embedded it into every stage of the property process. So, we’ve gathered the very best of their guidance to share with investors, developers, occupiers and the wider industry.

Our Members' View note will have two parts.

The first, being published on 1 November, will remind us of the scale of the challenge we face, the significance of real estate in any solution and show how SIOR Europe’s members are responding. It will provide useful, practical advice given by our members that show how they harness carbon neutral and climate positive action to add value.

The second, being published later the same week, will look across our membership, which spans Europe, and gather insight about what is happening across the continent and what we can learn from members in different countries and apply elsewhere.

After COP26, on 23rd November at 18:00 CET, we’re bringing together industry leaders for a webinar that will examine the outcomes of the summit and identify what we must do next. Panellists include GLP (a major logistics developer), a leading occupier, the International WELL Building Institute; and climate change and sustainability consultancy Ampersand Partners and CUBE, who will chair the event.

We want you to be part of this important discussion. Register your free place here. 

Paul Danks, SIOR FRICS
President of the European Regional Chapter of SIOR
