Transform Business Outcomes

Energy & Sustainability Services

Make business critical decisions by managing sustainability risk in your portfolios. Advising on the property lifecycle and helping you build your sustainable future.

Globally, we have over 250 energy and sustainability professionals, of whom more than 120 are based in the EMEA region. Our team’s skillset varies from chartered energy engineers and managers, accredited LEED, BREEAM, ISO & Wellness sustainability professionals, through to qualified measurement and verification specialists and energy / water procurement experts.

Services for occupiers

We have developed a sustainable building program to optimise the supply, demand and usage of utilities and resources, specially for occupiers; We call it: “Buy Smart, Use Smart and Be Responsible.”

That means we support businesses from the development of a utilities procurement strategy, through to reducing costs and emissions across buildings and portfolios, and finally ensuring compliance with environmental legislation while improving the value of their assets.
With this three-pronged energy and sustainability approach, we have been able to support over 100 clients in EMEA, manage €1bn in utilities spend, save €23m and reduce 70m kg CO2e – the equivalent to 1.8m planted trees.

Services for Investors

Our team draw on CBRE’s global real estate expertise to provide investors with a comprehensive service, from developing sustainable practices to improving building performance, enhancing reputation through reporting and certifications to reducing risk around legislation and obsolescence.

Because property is our core business, CBRE’s energy and sustainability experts are uniquely positioned to provide a long-term real estate focus. Our teams not only help investors to attract and retain occupiers, but also ensure regulatory compliance, mitigate risk and create utility savings with access to the latest research and analysis.
