Therefore, for inclusive, economic growth and shared prosperity, the built environment as a matter of urgenc, must begin to take the lead in the plan, designing and managing more resilient and sustainable communities. To achieve this Real Estate Unite Summit has been redesigned to address the global challenges and encourage the built environment in Africa to embrace the sustainability culture.
Real estate Unite Summit initiator and founder, Ruth Obih during the announcement ceremony, said,“Getting the real estate players to embrace sustainability is our collective goal. Our plan is to create a community of stakeholders who are passionate about sustainable development and culture. Encourage education and participation in sustainability-related activities. Recognise organizations that are taking the lead in sustainability and finally lobby for ESG regulations, policies and better incentives for this community”.
The built sector has a substantial sustainability impact through land development, resource use, waste generation and labour practices throughout its life cycle.
