31 national PropTech networks join forces by signing the ‘Confirmation of Commitment and Support’. The national PropTech networks confirm their commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, they express their support to share knowledge, experience and connections to inspire, develop and connect leaders around the world to create a future-proof environment for everyone.
We have ten years left to achieve the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are signed by 193 countries in 2015. The real estate industry has a huge impact on the liveability on present and future generations on our planet. In addition, the integration of technology in the real estate industry has grown strongly and technology holds the incredible potential to transform the world for the better. By unlocking global human potential and using technology as a lever, we are able to make a substantial contribution to these Global Goals and make a positive impact on the world.
We know that our purpose is ambitious. Driving long-term, sustainable change across our highly complex and interconnected world is not easy. We know that problems do not exist in isolation, and incremental change is no longer sufficient to fix the world’s most pressing challenges. Joining forces is essential (see Overview and Quotes below).
With this announcement, we call public organizations, (real estate, technology, VC) companies, and knowledge & education institutions to
- Take strategic actions to advance societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation;
- Reach out to the national PropTech networks or PropTech for Good to share your challenges/ problems you want to solve and/ or objectives you want to achieve;
- Fill in the form if your PropTech company can contribute to the SDGs;
- Schedule a call with Menno Lammers to discuss a partnership;
- Subscribe to the PropTech for Good newsletter to stay ahead of the PropTech for Good curve.
Guided by the Goals, it is now up to all of us to work together and use Property and Technology for Good. We are looking forward to uniting the world’s leaders and innovators to accelerate the contribution to society’s greatest challenges.
