    If considered a country, the cement industry would be the third largest CO2 contributor in the world behind only the US and China.

    How to measure and improve sustainability of real estate with University of Cambridge Professor Franz Fuerst and Anna Clare Harper

    How to measure and improve sustainability of real estate with University of Cambridge Professor Franz Fuerst and Anna Clare Harper

    I loved chatting to leading green real estate economist, University of Cambridge Professor Franz Fuerst, about measuring and improving the sustainability of real estate for the podcast.

    Topics included:


    How the urgent situation in Ukraine affects important work in environmental performance of buildings
    The impact of Goodhart’s Law: "When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure"
    How we can understand and improve both potential and actual environmental and social performance of buildings, from knowing the limitations of EPCs to measuring spatial efficiency, walkability and ‘walkacity’

    Later Living with Nick Sanderson, Founder and CEO of Audley Group, a leading retirement village provider in the UK and Chair of industry body ARCO

    For years, we work towards retirement. In the UK, the average retirement now lasts 20 years… But what actually happens when you retire?

    I quizzed Nick Sanderson, Founder and CEO of Audley Group, a leading retirement village provider in the UK and Chair of industry body ARCO on retirement living, with highlights including:


    The difference between care homes, retirement homes and staying at home, and why the fear of care home living keeps most people at home for too long
    The huge supply shortage - in the context of a growing population aged 65+, predicted to increase to 17.8 million people over the next 30 years!
    The investment case for retirement living, record sector growth to £1.3bn investment in 2021, and what is expected next

    Being a woman in property and investment with Rebekah Tobias, Head of Business Development at Family Office Marcol and Anna Clare Harper

    Being a woman in property and investment with Rebekah Tobias, Head of Business Development at Family Office Marcol and Anna Clare Harper

    Q: Is talking about gender diversity (and indeed, any kind of diversity) in real estate and investment a waste of time?

    A: Yes, unless it’s backed up by action.

    So what kind of action can we take?

    I got together with Rebekah Tobias, Head of Business Development at Family Office Marcol, to talk about:


    The realities of being a career-focused woman in investment
    International Women’s Day signalling vs reality (the paygap in our industry has got *worse* by 11% in the last 7 years)
    The power of education, visibility and personal responsibility
    What we wish we’d known earlier in our careers…
