BBP Real Estate ESG Training

ESG Data, Benchmarking and Target-setting

This module gives real estate professionals insight into the challenging but vital area of ESG and sustainability data. Data is about real performance, not just hoped-for outcomes. Good quality data is surprisingly hard to get, but with it, and the right approach to analysis (including benchmarking) and target-setting, we can properly test, monitor, improve and disclose. Data bridges and connects strategy with implementation.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the course, participants will have:

  1. An appreciation of the crucial role that the ‘data bedrock’ plays in sustainability strategies, implementation and reporting
  2. Awareness of the fundamentals of data management and performance measurement, as well as its pitfalls and how to avoid them
  3. Knowledge of the different kinds of ESG data and KPIs
  4. Experience of how benchmarking (such as REEB) are used to inform effective performance management and inform target-setting
  5. A sound understanding of setting effective targets
  6. Awareness of the importance of presentation and data visualisation
  7. An appreciation of the future of ESG data and performance monitoring
