Masdar Sustainable Real Estate Trust

In January 2020, Masdar launched the first sustainable real estate investment trust (REIT) in the region, based on commercial properties in Masdar City. Established as a private trust at ADGM, the REIT provides an alternative method for third-party investors to direct capital toward sustainable development goals. Ultimately the long-term ambition is to list as a public REIT on the ADGM, creating an opportunity for retail and institutional investors alike to invest in a financial product backed by high-quality assets and based on clear sustainability specifications.

Masdar Engendering Cooperation Across the Sustainability Domain

As a host of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, Masdar has engendered cooperation across the sustainability domain, promoting awareness of the technologies and regulatory structures that underpin today’s sustainable finance instruments. Masdar invests with its partners to demonstrate the viability of clean technologies at scale to multiple stakeholders, particularly policymakers and the wider financial community – through projects in more than 30 countries. This has fostered public-private collaboration in both developed economies and emerging markets, everywhere from Morocco to Indonesia, and from Serbia to the United States. Masdar will continue to facilitate ‘green’ financial instruments to bring innovative technology to market, be they bonds, loans, or a hybrid of the two. The GBP 1.27 billion refinancing of Masdar stake in the UK’s Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm in December 2018, is an example of the latter.
