CBRE is the world’s largest real estate investment manager, with 44,000 employees, 360 offices in 60 countries and revenues of $9 billion. Consistent energy and sustainability information management is vital to ensure CBRE’s clients fulfil their ambitious sustainability goals as well as to guarantee legislative compliance and streamline external reporting.
Therefore, CBRE needs a tailored system to support its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Risk Mitigation Project, linked to new energy efficiency regulations. This helps to identify risk and provide coherent information on actual or estimated EPC ratings, while also allowing CBRE to collect data on electricity, gas, water and waste consumption. This can be incorporated into annual reporting and provides greater context around building performance.
CBRE started to capture data on building energy initiatives and performance in one single database for all properties, with access tailored to individual users and the portfolios they manage. These users now upload and store EPCs and other sustainability certificates and information in their integrated management system, which automatically generates dashboards to display information and provides a basis for decision making.
Finally, automated reporting to stakeholders ensures they receive the information they need, in an easy to understand format. This is streamlining the reporting process, mitigating risk, centralizing information and providing dynamic real-time dashboards to staff and clients, enabling regulatory compliance and supporting sustainability success.
