Abstract

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) measures continue to grow in both academic and industry relevance. This literature focuses on the commercial real estate literature related to ESG. The Environment section outlines the significant bodies of work on that area, which are well researched. Related work discussing literature on ISO 14000, the system accepted by the United Nations Financial Council on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for carbon reporting is also reviewed.. The Social and Governance portions explore the growing literature in those areas. The literature identifies research gaps particularly in social and governance as many ESG requirements move from voluntary to regulated. Question on the form and impact of governance—especially in private markets remain largely unasked. Similarly, the nascent social literature continues to look for uniformity of definition for social and defining its business and community impact. These and other research gaps provide meaningful future research opportunities.
