Sustainability framework offering launched to help clients’ reach ESG goals

We have launched our sustainability framework offering, an integrated and holistic service which supports our clients in achieving and monitoring its multiple ESG targets.

The framework is an organisational solution for achieving multiple sustainability goals at once and can be applied at asset or portfolio level. It considers sustainability targets, fund strategies, and the buildings themselves to create an optimised set of upgrades over the span of an assets lifecycle.

This includes support with project managing the implementation of the upgrades, as well as collaboration and engagement with occupiers to meet several sustainability targets such as MEES, net zero or other initiatives including NABERS at once, as well as continual governance monitoring.
