Our Property Sustainability Agenda

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

We are going beyond zero

World Green Building Week | 25th - 29th September

Did you know that buildings account for over a third of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions? This is a key contributor to climate change. We can change that by going net zero. Net zero buildings are highly energy-efficient buildings which generate or supply the energy they need to operate from renewable sources to achieve net zero carbon emissions. They are helping us win the fight against climate change. That makes them heroes. Let’s make all buildings net zero by 2050.

This year, we are Transforming Real Estate by looking at how the sustainability agenda will continue to shape the industry in the next 20 years. For example, we are going “beyond zero” to help a few clients become “Net Positive”. Net Positive is an approach that means giving back more than is used because ‘doing less harm’ isn’t enough anymore. Businesses now need to have a positive impact on the world.

We have gathered a few case studies from our clients and our own operations to show how buildings can change the world. As a Gold Leaf member of the UK Green Building Council, we are proud to support World Green Building Week (25th Sep – 1st Oct).
