Today, ESG in real estate is fragmented and disjointed, because it operates from within a mix of traditional and innovative practices.
From specialised consultancies to scaled data solutions, the industry seeks to scale up planetary and corporate solutions for good, but fails to equally address environmental, social and governance impact aligned for unique stakeholders across the disparate value and supply chain.
As a result, we’ve found real estate clients are struggling to consistently navigate their ESG-journey. Its many challenges, from investment through to construction, operation and exit are resulting in increased corporate and development risk; as well as lost financial opportunity.
These are the challenges we will solve. We always question convention. We constantly seek a better, more efficient way to drive better impact, and always place our client at the center of our solutions.

Greener buildings mean cheaper rates of finance and better long term value. Our services highlight the investment risk of an asset, in line with evolving sustainability regulations. This means we can provide a more accurate asset value based on regulatory risk, useful in purchasing negotiations.
ESG-aligned buildings are very sought after from investors and consumers. Therefore, we work with developers on ESG strategies to achieve green funding, and support the implementation of an ESG strategy throughout the development of a site. We ensure that your ESG principles remain a priority at every RIBA stage and are never costed out.
We work with developers through to occupier handover, so every element of the scheme is best communicated to ensure perfect operation. We help you hire the right teams across the design and construction phase.
We will also lead on communication with relevant stakeholders, such as local authorities, to ensure they understand your ESG principles and why they benefit the community.
Often contractors are left isolated, struggling to figure out how to implement an ESG strategy to the budget provided by the client, and sometimes deemed responsible if goals are not met.
We work with contractors to help them understand the requirements of each bespoke ESG strategy, and how to implement it, ensuring you meet operational KPIs.
It is one thing building in alignment with ESG goals, it is another to ensure the building is operating as intended.
We work with building operators to accurately capture data, creating reports which we measure against the KPI’s and the ESG strategy of your asset / company.
We share these reports with relevant stakeholders, making certain everyone has clarity on how the building is performing to align with their own ESG strategies / funding / accreditations.
Occupiers are the single biggest variable in green buildings. The credentials of a building can change dramatically depending on how the occupier is using it. We work with occupiers to understand data capture and how to enhance ESG capabilities through simple yet powerful behavioural adjustments.
We also work on communicating the value the building performance can have for their own ESG strategies and brand, delivering additional value at every touchpoint.
ESG risk is now financial & reputational risk.
ESG performance in all stages of real estate has never been more important; morally or commercially.
Morally, the property sector is responsible for 39% of all energy-related CO₂ emissions globally, whilst having the unique ability to influence the health, wellbeing and quality of life experienced by people who spend their time in and around those buildings. Whether you are an investor, developer, contractor or consultant, the real estate decisions you make have a direct and indirect impact on the health of people and the planet.
Commercially, the environmental, social and governance impact of these decisions can now be measured, with these impacts actively considered by funders, customers and stakeholders when determining the value, risk, resilience and trust of a business or property asset.
Once considered a ‘nice to have’, ESG is now an investment and reputational risk, as well as a considerable opportunity for every real estate-based company.
