Energy & Sustainability Integrated Solutions

As demonstrated by our science-based targets, corporate commitments and the amount of real estate we manage on behalf of our clients, we play a significant role in helping to limit the rise in global temperatures. Facilities management is core to sustainability, and with our mix of on-site teams, subject matter experts and supply chain partners, we improve the efficiency and sustainability of building operations.

Increase my real estate’s sustainability

The next step after your organisation formulates its ESG targets is to create and implement a strategy. The question is what that strategy is. There are endless options – installing heat pumps, to developing a sustainable facility purchasing policy. Our consultants will help you choose by working with you to create an implementable sustainability plan that will have the most impact on your organisation – and will pay for itself in the long run, for instance, with higher returns.

  • Broad expertise in sustainability-related issues
  • Skilled specialists in BREEAM, LEED and WELL certification
  • Concrete and implementable advice that fits within your strategy
  • Custom-made solutions with practical support

From goals to results

CBRE helps you with the art of translating your sustainability goals into concrete actions at a building level. That means we examine your portfolio closely and ask the right questions – what locations offer the most gains, and what measures can we implement to achieve this in the most efficient way possible? We also weigh up different interests, such as what is important for your stakeholders, like investors and tenants and ensuring their desires are represented in your strategy. By working from a broad perspective to increasingly concrete plans, we can make your sustainability strategy manageable – and therefore implementable. We also help you integrate sustainability into your financing proposition, so that you can achieve more favourable outcomes.

Close to all sustainability certifications

BREEAM, LEED and WELL certification are not only ways to show what buildings are sustainable and healthy – they also form a guideline that you can apply to improve buildings in the most targeted ways possible. Our teams have accredited experts in all relevant sustainability and wellness certifications. That enables us to benchmark your real estate carefully and devise concrete sustainability scenarios for you. That way, we help you to become more sustainable and aligned with a streamlined plan, and obtain the certifications that are important for your portfolio.

A collective effort

It is high on CBRE’s agenda to ensure that real estate is more sustainable. We have set ourselves a target of reducing CO2 emissions in the Netherlands by 25% from commercial real estate. To achieve that, we use The Real Impact Project, which is our toolkit for real estate sustainability. All CBRE teams are also working on their sustainability goals based on their own expertise. 

That means we make it easy for our colleagues to connect with your issues. We would be pleased to utilise our organization-wide knowledge to make your sustainability strategy successful – from the Capital Markets team with experience with pan-European impact funds, to our appraisers who can determine the sustainability value of buildings and our Design Studio who designs circular interiors.
