HOW TO GREEN THE BROWN
Most buildings around the world were not designed and constructed with sustainability in mind. The vast majority of commercial properties are ageing, brownfield structures needing an urgent uplift in green credentials.
Find out how you can embark on the journey from brown to green.
If you are interested in greening your brownfield asset, you may be interested in meeting our sustainability or investment services experts.

Our Sustainability Services in action
Life is what we make it. That’s why we are making changes for people and the planet. Together with our clients, we are living change now. We are driving the shift to a net-zero world; delivering sustainable, healthy places; and creating a positive social impact.
In Rotterdam, we’re working on the city’s most iconic building, the World Trade Center. WTC sets a high bar for the sustainable retrofitting of historic properties, including solar panels, renewable energy and climate control systems. It started out at a “G” energy rating, and together we brought it up to “A++”.
Life is about maximizing our resources. That’s why in Singapore we help the Singapore Sports Hub embed sustainability into everyday solutions. Like harvesting rainwater so the pitch stays green. Because by including sustainability in everything we do, we can help ensure that Life Is What Singapore Makes It.
Because life is about making the planet greener, in Singapore we’ve partnered with ComCrop to build Singapore’s first commercially scalable urban rooftop greenhouse. Together we’re bringing fresher greens from farm to table, and helping to achieve Singapore’s food security goals.
We are living change in Baltimore, where the award-winning 750 E Pratt has been setting sustainable building standards. We’ve been helping them consume less energy and optimize building solutions, achieving Baltimore’s first LEED platinum and consistently high ENERGY STAR scores.
We’re living change now in Rotterdam, where we helped the sale of World Port Center by assessing and confirming its strength in ESG. Because together, life is what Rotterdam makes it.
As one of the tallest buildings outside of Manhattan, the iconic 57 storey skyscraper in Queens has always stood out. But now it’s winning awards, too. Taking the lead from our client, Savanna, our team helped modernize all 1.5 million sqm, to save over 4.4 million kilowatt-hours of electricity - 20% less than the previous year.
We partnered with Hektar Nektar, on ‘Project 2028’, an initiative to protect the regional bee population and increase their number by 10% by 2028. We’ve given 500,000 honeybees a new home close to each of our German locations. Our beehives, complete with Cushman & Wakefield door signs, are buzzing with life and not only producing amazing honey but are also helping rebalance the ecosystem.
