  • scientific/technological (innovations in materials, products, best practices both design/construction and management, IoT introduction, research into new, more performing materials and with low environmental impact, with analysis of their lifecycle, costs and phase-out; new methods of top efficiency integrated management of real estate assets; smart working in eco-layouts; CDF analyses, etc.);
  • social/cultural (attention focused on environmental value, communications to stakeholders, opening to the next community, etc.);
  • economic/financial (analysis and monitoring of international best practices, introduction of innovative concepts, analysis of possible sharing/circular economy applications, etc.);
  • regulatory/institutional (frame analysis and close monitoring of improved respect for the law; monitoring and joining the best associations to enlarge the network of expertise, new certification protocols, new leasing, property and facility management contracts);
