Energy efficient building meeting environmental standards
Previously relegated to last place, or even ignored, environmental criteria now tend to dominate among those factors which may fundamentally guide investor and occupier decisions in selecting a building.
On the basis of this trend, BNP Paribas Real Estate’s Transaction teams are working in conjunction with those in Valuation and Consulting to deliver the most appropriate solutions to our clients.
For major building users, an energy-efficient building meeting environmental standards is not always the immediately obvious choice. Consulting staff stress to clients the benefits of selecting the most compliant buildings possible relative to these standards, in particular by striving to enhance clients' property ranking schemes to include ‘green’ factors.
BNP Paribas Real Estate's Valuation business line is a member of the French Association of Property Valuation Companies (AFREXIM). As such, the Valuation team requests documents and information from its clients regarding the energy efficiency and environmental performance of property assets to be valued. This information gathering is a decisive factor in building valuations.
