Case Study

European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) - Driving improvements in sustainability reporting by European-listed real estate companies.


  • To engage with EPRA’s members to understand the industry’s position on voluntary and mandatory sustainability reporting.
  • To develop Best Practices Recommendations (‘BPR’) to facilitate robust and accurate reporting of sustainability performance against key indicators such as absolute energy consumption (kWh) and GHG emissions intensity (CO2 / m2 / year).
  • The programme of work aimed to:
    - Establish consensus on sustainability performance indicators relating to energy, GHG emissions, waste and water for buildings in use.
    - Enable EPRA to develop a policy position on sustainability performance indicators and influence the development of future initiatives and regulation.
    - Develop sustainability reporting protocols and guidance – leading to EPRA Best Practices Recommendations.


  • Jones Lang LaSalle conducted 20 in-depth interviews and an online survey to gauge current sustainability reporting practice, including challenges associated with reporting absolute and intensity performance.
  • Interactive workshops with the EPRA Sustainability Reporting Committee took place in January and March 2011 to feedback the results of the engagement exercise and to facilitate comment on evolving drafts of the EPRA Best Practices recommendations.


  • The Best Practice Recommendations were launched in September 2011 and are available here.
  • Jones Lang LaSalle recently secured a three year contract to advise and assist EPRA on Sustainability BPR Awards.
