The diminishing CO2 impact of Swiss real estate investments
Greenhouse gas emissions from buildings owned by Swiss real estate investment vehicles fell by around 10% in 2021 on the previous year. According to the second annual study looking at the ESG commitments of Swiss real estate funds, foundations and companies – carried out by researchers at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Lausanne (HEC Lausanne) in collaboration with BCV – there was a shift toward renewables and away from fossil energy, which accounted for 42% of the buildings’ energy mix, down from 46% in 2020.
