Integrating Sustainability in Property Valuation

Highlights from the high-level roundtable

European Parliament | 26 January 2016


The use of property valuation is an essential aspect of the property lifecycle: that is why encouraging energy efficiency and renewable energy needs to start here. To accelerate the market transition towards nearly Zero-Energy Buildings, it is essential to demonstrate the business case for and the value of sustainable buildings to prospective buyers, sellers, lenders, and investors.

On 26 January 2016, the RenoValue project organized the roundtable “Integrating sustainability in property valuation“, an opportunity to discuss why and how policymakers should strengthen the role of property valuers as drivers of the market transition towards sustainable buildings.

The event was organized at the European Parliament in Brussels with the support of Theresa Griffin MEP (S&D, UK) and Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP (EPP, Finland) and in collaboration with the Renovate Europe Campaign.

The debate was moderated by Ursula Hartenberger, Global Head of Sustainability at RICS, on behalf of the RenoValue Consortium.

Marie Donnelly, Director at DG ENER, and forty stakeholders representing valuation professionals, products manufacturers, service providers, architects, research centers, investors and specialized press attended the roundtable.
