Sustainability Solutions

Accelerate your journey to net-zero, improve the resiliency and reliability of your real estate and reduce the total cost of ownership of your portfolio. 


Energy & Sustainability Integrated Solutions

As demonstrated by our science-based targets, corporate commitments and the amount of real estate we manage on behalf of our clients, we play an out sized role in helping to limit the rise in global temperatures. Facilities management is core to sustainability, and with our mix of on-site teams, subject matter experts and supply chain partners, we improve the efficiency and sustainability of building operations.

CBRE’s Science based targets

  • 68% reduction in global operations scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 2035 from 2019 levels
  • 79% reduction in emissions per square foot in facilities CBRE manages for occupiers by 2035
  • 67% reduction in emissions per square foot in facilities CBRE manages for investors by 2035
  • 100% renewable electricity by 2035, including transitioning our vehicle fleet to electric vehicles

Our Approach

Our aim is to reduce the total cost of ownership of our clients’ portfolios and their journey to net-zero as a transition program implemented across the integrated facilities management operating model, requiring strong coordination, collaboration and systems working across the value chain within a robust governance structure.

Our Program

Our methodology brings together talent, capabilities, and experience as a global property occupier, investor and manager to achieve carbon neutrality commitments, improve portfolio resiliency and reduce asset life-cycle costs, while mitigating risk and friction within company operations as these changes are deployed.
