Green finance in real estate
To promote green finance initiatives and incentivise sustainable practices, governments worldwide have implemented various regulatory measures that continue to evolve.
Our position at the forefront of dynamic government changes worldwide enables us to navigate the complexities behind evolving regulations. Through our in-depth knowledge and experience, we help real estate investors and financial institutions interpret and comply with the evolving regulatory frameworks in different jurisdictions.
It is also essential to acknowledge that while some regions, like Singapore, have been proactive in establishing frameworks and incentives for green finance, others, like Hong Kong, may have experienced slower uptake due to various factors. Our in-depth knowledge and networks in different regions allow us to understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by various regulatory environments.

Our expertise in green finance, whether in the form of green loans or sustainability-linked loans, has helped real estate investors make a positive impact on climate change mitigation and ultimately meet their sustainability performance targets.
