One World One Realty Summit to build the foundation of a sustainable future for the real estate sector
Rapid urbanisation and a robust economy are among the key drivers that have helped the real estate and construction sector grow by leaps and bounds over the past few decades in India. Despite such phenomenal growth, the sector appears to have missed the memo when it comes to adopting sustainable practices.
According to a United Nations Environment Programme report, the sector has one of the highest carbon footprints in the world and accounts for around 30% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions annually across the globe. It also consumes around 40% of the world’s energy.
The figures point at a bleak future if nothing is done to mitigate the effect of rising greenhouse emissions and the way the industry is contributing to climate change. The One World One Realty Summit - Global PropTech Summit 2021 aims to chart a sustainable path for the real estate and construction industry by leveraging technology and innovative solutions designed by PropTech startups.
The online summit is being organised by The INDIA Advantage Summit (TIA Summit) and Presenting sponsors are Brigade Real Estate Accelerator Programme (REAP) and HDFC Capital on April 22 and 23, 2021 to mark the International Earth Day.
The event is an attempt to start a dialogue by bringing various stakeholders together on a common platform and contributing towards the creation of a carbon-neutral world.
