Report: CoreNet Global and Sodexo Manufacturing Industry Survey [survey report] Members Only
Across the globe, the manufacturing industry is vital for economic prosperity, contributing to exports, offering much needed employment and ultimately increasing the standard of living.

In 2012, manufacturing accounted for approximately 16% of global GDP and 14% of employment, and its importance continues to grow.3 Despite this favorable outlook, manufacturers will face significant challenges in the coming years.

Article: Post COP 21 – Success or Failure? Members Only
The close of COP 21 in Paris brought together 195 Nations to set the stage for limiting temperature rise in an historic agreement. Beyond curbing temperature rise, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability to deal with the impacts associated with climate change. The agreement sets a long-term direction with countries peaking their emissions as soon as possible and continuing to submit action plans on climate that detail their future objectives in an effort to effectively address the issue. Sam Pickering, Senior Director of Source8, and Begüm Kürkçü, Sustainability Manager at Mitie, provide their commentary on both the upside and downside of this important agreement. Sam and Begüm are both based in London.




Article: Around the World in Dollars and Cents Members Only
World real estate is a global stage on which a variety of economic and monetary acts are played out. Some actors have access to large amounts of equity, others to cheap debt. Many players in recent years have been operating under much looser monetary conditions than in previous decades so money has become cheaper and opportunities have been presented in those countries where asset prices were hit by domestic recession. This means that cross-border activity in real estate has generally grown since the global financial crisis of 2008. The proportion of deals done where buyers originate in different countries has increased from a low 17% in 2009 to 20% in 2015. Over the same period, cross-border volumes have grown by 334% from $65 billion to $217 billion. In this issue of Around the World in Dollars and Cents, we have taken a look at how much real estate there is in the world and how much of that is available for investors, both domestic and cross-border. For the first time we have included agricultural in our assessment, so we are presenting a complete cross-sector picture that includes residential and commercial assets.
