The latest survey from CBRE, 2015 EMEA Investor Intentions Survey, highlights the effects of occupier corporate social responsibility, investment risk, and regulations in terms of sustainability and property. These three factors bring commonly antagonistic characters – the occupier and the landlord – together through the buzzword of 2015, collaboration.
“It’s a perfect green storm in many ways. Regulation driven by the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, including Minimum Energy Performance Standards, is now front of mind for owners. Occupiers want to be located in buildings with sustainable features to attract and retain talent, and investors don’t want to fall foul of regulation and take a financial hit if buildings are obsolete.” Rebecca Pearce, EMEA Head of Sustainability, at CBRE, says.
This ideal collaboration can be a difficult point to reach, which makes us ask:
Are we working efficiently within these efficiently designed buildings?
