About the Client
Our client is an American business operating across the world, whose core business lies in financial information and analytics. Environmental sustainability forms an essential part of their corporate responsibility strategy.
CBRE provides real estate and energy and sustainability services across a substantial portion of their global portfolio; this includes the gathering of environmental utility data, such as energy and water consumption.
It was crucial for our client to understand how their current sustainability programme compared to their peers’, and where competitors were performing better; the challenge was that they had only a partial understanding of what competitors were doing. They also wanted to understand any gaps or oversights in their environmental data collection and reporting processes so they could reduce inefficiency and risk. Additionally, they wanted an independent assessment of their current programme to ensure it matched industry standards and stakeholder expectations.
