Case Study

Better Building Partnership (BBP) | London | 22 Million Sq FT

Helping London’s biggest real estate players
to reduce carbon by 60% on some 22 million sq ft

In support of the Mayor’s 2025 carbon reduction targets, a collaboration of London’s 12 leading commercial property owners – the BBP – has been established to improve the sustainability performance of some 22 million sq ft of office and retail space. With an outstanding reputation for performance measuring, monitoring and benchmarking, and a pivotal position in the real estate industry, we were trusted to advise on a sustainability reporting framework for universal commitment by the Partnership.

Vital to across-the-board commitment was the dialogue that we nurtured with every property owner to ensure smooth agreements on energy and carbon benchmarks - the cultivation of a collaborative environment and a collective understanding across the BBP is critical to the long-term success of the Partnership.  As well as building and gaining buy-in for the benchmarking framework, we were instrumental in authoring related best practice principles and detailing the specific issues and challenges businesses might face when benchmarking their buildings.

Today the reporting framework – and the measuring, monitoring and benchmarking of carbon performance - is now firmly embedded within the practices and processes of BBP members, and has put everyone on track for the Mayor’s target of a 60% carbon reduction by 2025.
