It is submitted in response to a request from the UK Regulator, Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), for input on the development of real estate-specific metrics. The aim is to provide consistent, transparent, and comparable reporting and disclosure both across the EU and UK, as well as internationally for real estate portfolios, covering all real estate asset classes. The reporting and disclosure should be aligned with TCFD guidelines and the evolving UK Sustainability Disclosure Requirements.
The Associations look forward to progressing the FCA dialogue and resolving a time framework for implementation.
