Every company needs a clear action plan
Action on decarbonization is not optional. According to the Carbon Risk in Real Estate Monitor (CRREM) and The Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) only 15% of global assets currently align with the 1.5°C target set out by the Paris Agreement. This means 37% of global buildings will need to be decarbonized by 2030 – failure to do so will become a business risk.
Transition to clean, renewable energy
Currently there is only one type of renewable energy that is practical and commercially viable for real estate owners and occupiers: on-site solar PV. Energy from the sun is the single most abundant of all energy resources that can be harnessed. Solar systems can lower you building’s energy use by as much as 50% and in many cases offset the entire energy bill.
