It’s estimated that commercial real estate accounts for around 40% of all carbon emissions – and with such a significant share of the world’s total, property owners will be under more scrutiny than ever over their efforts to decarbonise. COP 26 has heralded change for the financial services sector – investors will need to demonstrate that their portfolios have plans to deliver net zero by 2050.
Understanding the ‘carbon risk’ within your property portfolio is essential for your investment strategy – as is determining the options to get to net zero.
Commercial buildings present multiple challenges for decarbonisation and the costs are significant. A full options appraisal from an independent expert that looks at the building now, and how it will perform in 2050, results in better more informed decisions.
There are three core challenges for commercial property owners looking to decarbonise:
Each property will need a property-specific solution – so what’s the optimum cost to deliver the optimum carbon reduction?
How can you know the works have been effective in reducing carbon and delivering affordable heating and cooling?
What is the carbon risk inherent in your property portfolio?
Using our remote monitoring technology, we’ll provide data-led analysis to help us guide you to the most effective options to decarbonise a particular property – enabling us to provide you with a clear roadmap to meet your net zero obligations.
We can provide a detailed assessment of the options for complex buildings, designed to help you make the right decisions at the right time.
Once the property has been decarbonised, AI enabled technology also provides property performance data so we can evaluate the impact of the works, and make sure specified outputs in terms of carbon reduction and ongoing running costs have been delivered.
