Morphosis and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recently published a report titled "Crossing the Threshold" discussing sustainable digitalisation in real estate and cities. The report presents a number of environmental, social and governance issues under the cover of six separate "transformations", and outlines various opportunities and challenges associated with digitalisation in real estate and cities.

The report provides a framework for organisations to prepare for and navigate sustainable digitalisation and includes consideration of the potential impact of technologies such as:

  • building information modelling (BIM);
  • blockchain;
  • the "internet of things"; and
  • artificial intelligence.
