ESG made simple.
The pressure on building owners to make their buildings more sustainable is increasing. This is due to regulatory changes and increased energy prices. Not taking action negatively impacts buildings' value and can lead to non-sustainable buildings no longer being allowed to be rented or sold.
While portfolio owners are aware of these risks and are highly motivated to act, consistent data and information are usually lacking. This makes it difficult to decide whether a property should be bought or sold and when which energy refurbishment measures should be carried out.
