We support real estate companies to effectively use government relations.
For many years the property sector is facing significant deregulations in spatial planning policy, following which stakeholder management at local level is an essential element of lobbying. Public Matters also advises real estate players on depreciation-related tax issues and on the tax treatment of rental revenues.
Increasing role for energy policy and sustainability
In addition to reputation management, energy policy and sustainability also play an increasing (and often neglected) role in the sector. About 40% of total CO2 emissions is caused by the built environment and this confronts the sector with an enormous challenge.
Public Matters’ experience in this sector ranges from listed companies to housing associations, from disruptors to local players, and from sectoral to professional associations.
