According to the UN, 40% of the global greenhouse gases are produced by buildings, and an additional 30% is due to daily activities around buildings. The tenant’s actions greatly impact the whole building’s energy consumption. Although domestic real estates show rising interest in introducing ESG, currently, only hard-ESG that focuses on the energy consumption reduction on the building by real estate owners themselves is mainly considered for the initiative.
Meanwhile, research and practical studies performed overseas suggest that a large percentage of energy reduction in buildings are not from the building design or machinery, but from the tenant’s daily activities. The act of the tenants provides a large impact on building energy consumption.
Although it is proven that real estate with high levels of Soft-ESG literacy have elevated income and value, the domestic real estate market is untouched fields due to scarce data and expertise on Soft-ESG that includes the collaboration of all stakeholders.
