Rik Recourt

Associate at GRESB and consortium member of the carbon risk real estate monitor (CRREM) Project

Rik introduces the CRREM project’s mission, goals, and use cases for the real estate sector, including its potential to be used as a capital planning tool for retrofits to achieve Paris Alignment. He presented both a financial breakeven point, as well as an ecological breakeven point for retrofitting – demonstrating the importance of integrating embedded carbon of materials into retrofitting plans. Recourt stresses that as the real estate sector decarbonises its energy needs, that embedded carbon of building materials will become more important within the real estate sector’s carbon management programmes.
