Report: In and Out: Middle East Members Only
The rapid wave of real estate development and amount of wealth accumulated in the Middle East has long fascinated the rest of the globe. The abundance of natural resources in the region has resulted in a huge influx of wealth over the last 50 years. However, despite the massive development of commercial and residential property over that time, the investment market remains tiny by comparison, leaving unsatisfied demand. It also pushes cash-rich Middle Eastern investors towards alternative sectors and outside their home region. Are there changes ahead that may bring more opportunities to the Middle Eastern real estate market?

Report: How to Calculate and Present Deep Retrofit Value Members Only
This might come as a surprise to some, but energy efficiency is about more than energy, and deep energy retrofits, which achieve superior energy savings over conventional retrofits and can reduce a building's energy consumption by 50 percent or more, offer bottom-line benefits for business beyond energy cost savings alone. They generate substantial additional value that is typically ignored: improved employee health, productivity, and satisfaction; bolstered leadership credentials and reputation; access to tax, finance, and entitlement subsidies; improved risk management; reductions in non-energy operating costs; and higher occupancies, tenant retention, rents, and sales prices.

White Paper: Global Supply Chain's Impact on Effective Site Selection (Manufacturing & Industrial Knowledge Community) Members Only
As globalization continues to shrink the world and blur boundaries across business development, the issues to consider in exploring new markets, establishing cost-effective distribution centers and containing business costs have become infinitely more complex. For global supply chain management and site selection decision points in this process, risks related to governmental and political issues, rising tariffs, increasing transportation costs, shifting markets and currency rates are highly volatile influencers of success. Responding to these shifting complexities, and to the roadblocks and opportunities they present, is essential for establishing and maintaining a highly-functioning, efficient global supply chain. Having both the knowledge and the tools to understand and act on these influencers in the site selection process must be a key business goal. This white paper attempts to address many of these key drivers that inform the decision making process for global supply chain and site selection strategies and sets the stage for additional research to be completed as these questions are further explored.

Report: The road to 2030: a survey of infrastructure development in Russia Members Only
Infrastructure has been placed at the center of the Russian policy-maker's agenda, as it had become clear by early 2014 that the domestic economy was in need of enhanced domestic investment, especially to diversify away from extractive industries. Expectations in the first quarter of 2014 were for weak growth of around 1.4% GDP for the year, and there was a determination to focus on increasing inward investment while maintaining low inflation. Recent developments have been negative for the economy, as capital flight has been experienced alongside a weakened ruble. This has forced an increase in domestic interest rates and inflation seems likely to reappear. In the short term, at least, it seems unlikely that the private sector investment climate will improve.

White Paper: Corporate Real Estate Performance Management: Research Bulletin Members Only
CoreNet Global and Deloitte conducted a Survey on Performance Management and this white paper is based on the results of the Survey. The challenging economic conditions of the last five years provoked heightened awareness of cost drivers for companies across industries and geographies. Over the same period, options for data collection and analytics increased in number and in sophistication. These and other factors have contributed to elevated interest in performance management among Corporate Real Estate (CRE) organizations. Broadly speaking, CRE performance management encompasses the resources, tools, and processes used to measure and communicate performance across a CRE organization. Resulting insights can be used to inform decision-making, target-setting, and staff development priorities. The selection of performance metrics is a crucial aspect and is a common sticking point for many CRE organizations.
