Making Eco-Developments Happen

CONTENTS : 

Overview What is an Eco-development Government Focus Eco-initiatives CONTENTS Example Cities Eco-investments The Growth of Cities Vision 2

OVERVIEW : 

grenea applies the experience and knowledge gained from large Eco-projects to develop Eco-communities globally. By introducing streamlined, cost effective, Eco-friendly and innovative construction systems, grenea undertakes to minimize development cost and maximize IRR for investors while achieving zero emission developments. Each project engages innovative technology companies and developers committed to meeting the sustainability targetsand enhancing the commercial value of the real estate. greneais a pioneer of new sustainable business models that ensures the viability of the developments. Specific business models or combinations offer flexibility depending on project scope. Increasing urbanization and growing political support, regulation and incentives are creating a vibrant market. Eco-developments offer diversification within the green sector. Developments include many emerging opportunities from renewable energy, green technology and zero carbon solutions. Eco-developments answer the demands of socially responsible investors. Diminishing natural resources and higher prices are forcing companies and governments to adopt new strategies that favor the green sector, a nascent industry with huge growth potential. OVERVIEW greneaassures zero emission developments at competitive costs with conventional real estate thereby maximizing the IRR for investors 3

VISION : 

To provide the highest quality of life to citizens, a positive environmental footprint to real estate developments and the maximum value of property to investors VISION 4

THE GROWTH OF CITIES : 

Half of the world’s population lives in cities. The urbanization rate, which was just below 30% in 1950, rose above 50% in 2007. Urban population to double by 2050 to 6.4 billion (70%). Key Facts Rapid urbanization creating high stresses for many Asian cities, driving the construction of hundreds of new cities Asia to become 50% urban in the next 15 years 1.2 billion cars expected on the road by 2015 (circa 1 car for every 6 people) Underinvestment in developed world cities: new urban infrastructure required (41 T$ needed by 2013) Rise of “new” cities (Masdar, New Songdo City, GIFT, Lavaza, Iskandar, KAEC) Top 100 urban agglomerations currently accounting for 25% of worldwide GDP 95% of the world's cities still dumping raw sewage into their waters Cities occupy just 2% of the world’s landmass yet consume over two-thirds of the world’s energy Cities account for more than 70% of global CO2 emissions In cities, buildings can account for up to 80 percent of CO2 emissions. THE GROWTH OF CITIES 5

WHY REDUCE CO2 : 

Global emissions of carbon dioxide will grow by 43 per cent by 2035 if current patterns of energy usage continue and no global restrictions are applied. 1- Climate change The effect of all this extra carbon dioxide is that the overall temperature of the planet is increasing. Whilst the average global temperature is increasing, on a day-to-day level the climate is changing in unpredictable ways (from floods and hurricanes to heat waves and droughts). To try and reduce the risk of ever more extreme weather, we need to reduce how much fossil fuel we are burning. This isn't easy. 2- Resource conservation CO2 is a measure of inefficiencies and wastefulness. By reducing CO2 emissions we would be maintaining the planet resources If continued to be consumed at the current pace, our earth resources will not be able to cater for a world population of 9 billion by 2030 3- Quality of life CO2 is a measure of pollution and unhealthy environment. By reducing its emissions we would be creating a healthier lifestyle, a cleaner atmosphere WHY REDUCE CO2 6

Slide 7: 

Since cities are the main emitters of CO2 then Eco-developments must become a priority: 7

ECO-DEVELOPMENTS : 

ECO-DEVELOPMENTS An Eco-development is an urban space built to meet the highest standards of sustainability Eco-developments employ low and zero carbon technologies as a key part of their design. State-of-the-art recycling and water systems plus a clean and effective transport system, connected with public transport create a user friendly and healthy environment. Smart IT infrastructure and innovative technologies are encouraged in Eco-developments. Inhabitants of Eco-developments (or Eco-citizens) look for a high quality of life, a healthier lifestyle and a cleaner environment. Eco-developments can offer citizens growing savings on utilities bill, better assurance on the quality of building and infrastructure, better mobility and a potential for higher productivity. A development at regional and local levels, consistent with the potentials of the area involved, with attention given to the adequate and rational use of natural resources, technological styles and organizational forms that respect the natural Ecosystems and local social and cultural patterns. Source: OECD Eco-developments encourage efficient resource management and utilization. Eco-developments produce long term building and infrastructure assets which can have meaningful impact on reducing CO2 emissions. They offer the potential for significant economic impact with the growth and creation of Green jobs. Compared to traditional developments they offer the opportunity for differentiation resulting in a higher value for the developed assets. Drivers for Eco-developments New legislation and targets to curb carbon Improved and healthier quality of life Trend for more sustainable use of fragile earth resources Significant, yet untapped market opportunity Positive social and environmental impacts 8

GOVERNMENT FOCUS : 

GOVERNMENT FOCUS Future legislation will force zero or new limits of emissions from buildings . New legislation and targets to curb carbon is evident in a large number of government driven projects globally. As well as offering solutions for an improved and healthier quality of life these initiatives are sensitive to the trend for more sustainable use of fragile earth resources. To date government initiatives have focused on industry and renewable energy. However, a realization that cities are responsible for more than two thirds of the worlds energy consumption has led to increased government focus. Positive social and environmental impacts and increasing urbanization are major factors in the growth of government led initiatives. Each year as much as $100 billion is spent by governments and consumers around the world on green subsidies designed to encourage wind, solar, and other renewable-energy markets. Similar incentives are expected for Eco-developments providing green alternatives to urban living. Governments have finally come to the realization that something has to be done 9

ECO-INITIATIVES : 

ECO-INITIATIVES 10

EXAMPLE CITIES : 

Examples include: Logroño Montecorvo Eco City, Spain : Designed by MVRDV in collaboration with GRAS foresees the construction of 3,000 social homes and complementary program. The new neighbourhood achieves a CO2 neutral footprint by producing renewable energy on site. The total investment is 388 million Euro. Tianjin Eco City - China: 50:50 joint venture between a Chinese consortium led by Tianjin TEDA Investment Holding Co Ltd and a Singaporean consortium led by the Keppel Group Masdar City - UAE: The first city to claim carbon neutrality, zero waste. The city plans to rely entirely on solar and other renewable energy sources, with a sustainable, zero-carbon, zero-waste ecology. The city is being constructed 17 kilometres east-south-east of the city of Abu Dhabi, beside Abu Dhabi International Airport. There are over 30 newEco­citiesin development around the world today and over 15 cities with extraordinary plans for Eco-retrofitting. Almost all major cities in the world today are looking at sustainability aspects when considering new constructions and developments especially in the education, government, institutional, office and health care sectors. Europe, the US and Australasia already have established sustainability markets with substantial focus on building green. Their building rating schemes have experienced aggressive growth in the number of certifications in recent years and this trend is only expected to increase in the near future. Asia, including China and India, is seen to be the biggest green market in the short to medium term. Apart from renewable energy sources, sustainable materials, better construction practices and innovative technologies that conserve energy and resources are among the top themes in the green building marketplace. Product manufacturers that have a developed sustainability strategy, and can demonstrate the environmental performance of their products, will have a clear advantage over those that do not and this market differentiation, according to experts, will markedly increase within the next five years. EXAMPLE CITIES 11

MASDAR CITY : 

MASDAR CITY A case study Established in April 2006, Masdar is a multi-­faceted company advancing the development, commercialization and deployment of renewable energy solutions and clean technologies. Masdar integrates the full renewable and clean technology lifecycle -­ from research to commercial deployment with the aim of creating scalable clean energy solutions. Masdar works with global partners and institutions to integrate new research with proven technologies to produce efficient systems and processes that can be replicated globally. Suppliers to Masdar City : Have a vision and practices that support Masdar City and its goals Outperform Masdar City’s sustainability requirements Be developers of innovative, Eco‐friendly products Demonstrate theEco-friendliness of their products Maintain a cost-effective balance with their products profile Show commitment to sustainability and constant improvement Suppliers benefit by: Directly boosting growth and profit Unspoken statement of competitiveness and quality Incomparable visibility in the Global Sustainability Market (see page 8 for an overview of Eco-cities currently in development around the world) and a bolstered Corporate Look Being compelled to look “inward”, improve processes and innovate leading to increased medium-­‐term cost savings and productivity Masdar City is a Sustainable City aiming to provide the highest quality of life with the lowest environmental footprint. Developers have taken inspiration From traditional Arabian Cities 12

INVESTMENT IN ECO-DEVELOPMENTS : 

INVESTMENT IN ECO-DEVELOPMENTS The built environment has a vast impact on the natural environment, human health, and the economy. By adopting green strategies, we can maximize both economic and environmental performance. As a young and small sector the growth potential is large. Potential benefits of green developments include: Supported by long-term economic trends and increasing demand for zero carbon solutions investors in Eco-developments can expect a potential IRR of greater than 15%. Increasing urbanization and growing political support, regulation and incentives are creating a vibrant market. Countries around the world are imposing strict environmental targets on companies and consumers. Eco-developments offer diversification within the green sector. Developments include many emerging opportunities from renewable energy, green technology and zero carbon solutions Eco-cities answer the demands of socially responsible investors and since diminishing natural resources and higher prices is forcing companies and governments to adopt new strategies that favor the green sector. 13

Slide 14: 

Until recently the business case has been unclear to investors Barriers to Investment: Developer has no direct incentives =>” Greenwashing” No monetary value for reduced CO2 Developers looking for quick exit No one taking the role of an integrator Large numbers of small projects Many technologies promoted by different vendors Many end-use sectors: industry, commerce, residential, agriculture, etc. Diverse approaches: replacement, retrofit, extension, greenfield Consumer unsure about real savings Low consumer awareness in emerging economies Lack of attention to environmental issues Common belief that sustainability requires subsidies Government response to real estate issues is slow The role of Integrator The role of the “Integrator” is to accelerate the promotion and implementation of Eco-projects. The Integrator crystallizes the value proposition for the different project stakeholders The role is key in setting the financial and sustainability parameters grenea as Integrator grenea studies the project, sets the investment criteria, engages the right technology companies and invests in the project. grenea works closely with the developers and promoters of projects to ensure that meeting the sustainability targets will enhance the commercial value of the real estate. grenea will set-up the business model allowing the various project stakeholders, the city council or government to benefit financially and economically from the embedment of sustainability parameters. 14

Slide 15: 

grenea specializes in the advancement of Eco-developments through: Direct investment in the project and with the developer Direct participation in the development cycle to optimize project value Developing and investing in the technology partnerships for the project grenea invests mainly in mixed use developments We study and develop the business model We participate in equity in these projects We are currently looking at several projects in the US, Malaysia, Montenegro and Qatar grenea’s role generally starts at the planning stage of greenfield projects and takes an active role in refining concepts, master planning and development grenea’s mission is to make Eco-development mainstream in the global real estate and property markets. 15

Slide 16: 

To address the technical and financial challenges of developing “green projects”, the role of a development integrator should be introduced in real estate projects Based on its unique and in-depth experience in planning Masdar City and executing the first phase, grenea will assume this role and provide the business model and appropriate financial, social, and environmental incentives to the various stakeholders grenea will foster technology partnerships to enhance the property value, financial returns and sustainability targets of the project THE SELECTION CRITERIA These partnerships plus collaborations with the main pillars of the real estate supply chain will leverage the know-how and economies of scale in the various projects it integrates By doing this, grenea aims to become an international business reference for Eco-developments and a globally recognized green property investment entity 16

Slide 17: 

BUSINESS MODEL greneaoperates through a number of business models depending on project scope and allowing for flexibility 1-Private equity: grenea’s investment management team will raise and oversee the finance of a project: Develop project vision, brand and strategy, complete feasibility Develop investment packages and finalize deal structure Develop and maintain financial model Manage investors and financiers Optimize equity and cash injection Identify different streams for project finance Oversee the development progress Monetize excess energy and carbon savings to increase IRR Minimize cost and maximize IRR 2-Development management: grenea’s team of developers will be responsible for setting the development structure and execution: Manage the development of the Master Plan and the preliminary studies Optimize land use and phasing plan Develop sales and marketing strategy and associated collaterals Select PM and design firms, develop master schedule Oversee contracts management Oversee contract management with supply chain, hospitality and other project entities Oversee technology integration and ensure project Eco-profile 3-Private equity and development management: 4-Master concessionaire: grenea undertakes the complete development on a Build Operate and Transfer basis A typical example is oneproject in Eastern Europe 17
