Real estate alone represents nearly 25% of France's CO2 emissions. It is therefore a priority sector for reducing the country's carbon footprint.
Given the significance of companies' CSR policies (corporate social responsibility) and the pressure of increasingly demanding regulatory requirements (carbon footprint, business energy audits, tertiary sector decree, etc.), real estate is a major aspect of any company's energy strategy.
In order to help clients respond to these challenges, CBRE provides a range of energy efficiency optimisation services:
- Define and implement an action plan to reduce workplace energy bills and carbon footprint (energy audit, master plan, etc.)
- Reduce operating costs, particularly by (re)negotiating energy supply or operating agreements, or by adding contract incentives (CPE)
- Ensure the expected energy performance is achieved by implementing high quality procedures. We use our retro-commissioning (Cx) methodology to test, verify and ensure optimal workplace operation.
- Implement permanent tools to measure, collect and manage energy performance, from defining a metering plan to using energy data collected and destined for CSR reporting (via our ASSET IQ tool)
Given the increasing complexity of technical installations, rising energy costs and growing workplace quality expectations, responsible real estate management is a core concern and major source of differentiation for companies. CBRE relies on its reports and network to provide pragmatic responses to each of these issues, while simultaneously creating value.
