Testimonials

“I joined this course to learn more about sustainable real estate on an academic level. What I got out of it was so much more. I’ve taken away not only a ton of excellent theory and best practices, but an enriching network and my own Personal Action Plan to implement sustainability into my work.”

Dr David Wilde, CEO, hwg eG


“The CISL Real Estate Sustainability course was excellent. The content was exhaustive and interesting, mixing theory with real projects. I am much more aware of the impacts of sustainability from a holistic point of view and know how to apply it to my day-to-day job. The online course made it flexible in terms of timing and allowed participants from across the globe. I would encourage anyone within real estate to sign up to this course.”
