There is a great opportunity for real estate to lower operating costs and improve the quality of their buildings through sustainability strategies; but it can be difficult to know where to start. We provide a proven process for defining the program design, tackling low hanging fruit, and documenting returns to the bottom line.
We help you develop programs that enhance your organization's sustainability performance.
We facilitate strategic planning in order to define the vision, goals, and action plan for sustainability programs. We support your team through implementation and evaluation and help define an aligned sustainability & environmental management plan (SEMS) to maintain your progress.
We expand your team’s capacity and ability to create meaningful change and together we create a solution which aligns with your unique needs and priorities, and delivers positive returns.
We use reporting frameworks like GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) to develop public reports which authentically communicate vision and progress.
We use The Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark to evaluate opportunities and compare real estate portfolios and investment funds. We are adept at compiling a response for GRESB that is as painless as possible.
Building occupants play an important role in the efficiency of buildings, and often they need to be engaged and educated about their role. Our expertise in Sociology and Community Based Social Marketing (CBSM) methods allow us to develop a program tailored to your audience and resources.
Using tools like BREEAM in Use, EnergyStar, or LEED EB+OM, we support building managers in implementing programs to improve the sustainability and energy efficiency of their buildings.
