The Capital Markets Committee brings together global institutional capital and investment funds, private equity, and debt capital providers, in addition to hospitality owners/operators, to share perspectives, promote innovation and address the challenges faced in the hospitality sector.

The Committee aims to:

  • Promote knowledge-sharing on how the hospitality sector is addressing ESG from an investment and asset management perspective, across different pools of capital.
  • Consider the role of brands in complying with regulation and achieving sustainability goals.
  • Accelerate the growth of sustainable investment and ESG financing in the hospitality sector.
  • Raise awareness of how operations are being adapted to make hospitality assets more sustainable and illustrate how the activity is being measured and reported.
  • Help investment committee processes change to accommodate the evolving regulatory and investment landscape.
  • Increase understanding of how Net Zero initiatives can be priced.
  • Monitor the changing regulatory landscape and how it is impacting investment appetite and processes.
  • Develop standardised investment KPIs which help promote benchmarking, using common metrics.
