Energy and Sustainability


CBRE’s Energy and Sustainability team provides a market-leading service for investors. We help clients optimise their real estate to increase value, reduce operating costs and attract and retain the right tenants, while managing strategic risks, such as evolving environmental legislation.

With more than 120 dedicated Energy and Sustainability consultants across EMEA, our teams have a proven track record of helping clients turn their real estate into real advantage. We have audited 20M sqm of property for energy-saving opportunities, and assessed €50Bn worth of assets for legislative risk. 

A holistic approach


Our teams develop sustainability strategy with a holistic approach, factoring in your wider real estate requirements to ensure the best possible performance from your assets, portfolio and brand.

Our international reach means that we have expertise across all aspects of responsible business and sustainability, including energy, resource efficiency, engineering, certification, reporting, risk and engagement. With market leading research and thought leadership across the board, we know the value of sustainable buildings and how you can benefit.

Reputational excellence


Sustainable assets not only perform better financially, but are also proven to have more productive and better occupier experiences. We help investors to improve the sustainability performance of their real estate assets in order to reduce tenants’ occupancy costs and to meet responsible investment objectives. We also assist them to obtain independent ratings and certifications, and independent recognition for their sustainability achievements.
