Joanne McIvor looks at these issues and discusses how they have and will continue to become mainstream concerns.

Landlords and tenants need to collaborate and solve together the challenges of where the liability lies for improving the environmental performance of buildings.  The drive for net zero properties could lead to stranded assets and a new class of distressed assets.

Lenders are already showing a keen interest in the energy and environmental performance of their investment portfolios.  We are seeing, and will continue to see, funding decisions impacted on ESG and the development of green finance mechanisms.

Joanne also discusses planning which is still in a state of flux and not enough has been done to support the high street.
