TECH FOR IMPACT MAP 2021: TOP 100

First-ever Tech for IMPACT Map – ESG for the Built World

The global ESG transition is a highly complex and dynamic process. Achieving the goals of sustainable development "that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (cf. World Commission on Environment and Development’s 1987 Brundtland report) is on the agenda of international regulators, investors, and other stakeholders. In particular, increasing transparency requirements, further quality improvements and stricter risk management requirements pose major challenges for the real estate industry.

Only with individual and precisely fitting digital solutions will it be possible to meet these challenges efficiently. Around the globe, a broad universe of unique and intelligent solutions has developed. This first Tech for IMPACT Map shows the top 100 solutions founded in the last decade. The selection and classification into the five categories were based on the entire real estate life cycle and, in the sense of a sustainable development, on a holistic understanding of "E", "S" and "G" criteria

100 leading ESG technology companies
