Climate change and limited natural resources are forcing radical changes in approaches in the property sector.
At Cushman & Wakefield we believe that offices and architecture should be sustainable to help our planet. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and that of our clients during the lifecycle of properties through sustainable design and architecture. Sustainable portfolios also have significant commercial benefits; they have a reduced risk of obsolescence, lower operating costs, better occupier retention and greater social impact.
What can we offer you for sustainable architecture?
Our team of energy, infrastructure and sustainability professionals helps clients to achieve their sustainability targets across a range of geographies, sectors and portfolio types. Whether you are an investor, occupant or owner, we integrate sustainability in your business strategy.
Our team of specialists optimises the value of your sustainable offices, earning you new business, reducing costs and incorporating continuous sustainable strategies in the corporate programme.
Our global Energy, Infrastructure and Sustainability (EIS) advisory group is supporting clients to drive exceptional outcomes against these themes across a range of geographies, sectors and portfolio types. We collectively see these themes as an integral part of our own and our client’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategies and we are committed to delivering best in class ESG outcomes in both.
