EPRA Monthly Brief
November 2020
Earlier this month, EPRA released it first-ever study on Total Tax Contribution (TTC) of REITs in Europe produced in collaboration with PwC. Thanks to the participation of 48 European REITs from 11 countries and representing 82% of the entire European REITs portfolio value, this report provides an overview of the tax effort and contribution of REITs to the European public finance. And the results are impressive: as a whole, the study has gathered evidence-based data that for every EUR 100 of turnover, EUR 32.8 turn into tax contribution. You can read the full report here and reach out to the Public Affairs team should you have any question.  We will host a webinar aiming to give brighter information on the study on December 7, click here to register.

The Index & Research team has just released two Market Research papers, one covering the state of play in the European listed real estate and the other giving an interesting analysis of the European Residential sector evolution in the recent years. I invite you to read more below.

November has been rich of successful virtual events and webinars, namely the Virtual Bloomberg Intelligence and EPRA Real Estate Finance Summit 2020 as well as the second virtual EPRA Corporate Access Event which brought together 23 property companies and 76 investors in 288 meetings arranged in one day.

Finally, we will be hosting our Virtual Sustainability Summit on December 3. We will have the pleasure to listen to two keynote interviews with Jonathon Porritt, Sustainability Campaigner, writer and co-founder of "Forum for the Future", followed by Stefan Moser, Head of Unit, Energy Efficiency: Buildings and Products, DG ENER, European Commission. Have a look at the final agenda and register without delay.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and I look forward to meeting you in-person again as soon as possible in 2021.

Real estate in the real economy – 2020
EPRA and INREV renewed their collaboration once more to publish a full report highlighting the benefits and contributions the real estate industry brings to the real economy. In 2019, the sector provided more jobs than in the banking sector, or more than in the automotive and telecommunications sectors combined, and generated EUR 452 billion to the EU economy. In addition to widely support jobs in Europe, real estate plays a central role in every aspect of our businesses, industries and social lives and contributes toward a low carbon economy.
