In the context of the LANDdialogue, APG initiated a LGD_Reference Guide 2017. The guide provides a useful tool that can help investors identify and monitor ESG risks, and gives an overview of available information on general land-related topics for specific sectors and regions, including land use legislation for a number of countries.
Investments in real estate, large scale infrastructure, farmland and timber assets are becoming increasingly popular among institutional investors. Investments involving land acquisition carry a unique set of social and environmental risks and require specialist expertise for successful due diligence.
On 6 March 2018, 15.00 – 16.00 hrs (GMT), PRI hosts a Webinar in which the Guide will be introduced and discussed. More information about the event can be found here: PRI Planting the Seeds.
