The Real Value Of Real Estate
* Commercial Property plays a vital role in every
aspect of Europe's economy and is key to addressing
two critical challenges of our Time:
- Providing liveable and functioning cities for a growing
urban population, and reducing the EU's future energy
needs. An Efficient real estate sector provides the
platform from which the EU Economy can maximize its
potential.
- Supporting Growth, Jobs and Sustainable living.

3.5 billion m2 of floor space to business.

2. Economy contribution
Commercial property contributed EUR
285 billion to the EU Economy last year
- More than the automotive and
telecoms sector combined (in fact, 2.5%
of European GDP).

4+ million people - more than
the automotive, telecoms or
banking sector.
