A high percentage of our clients not only expect sustainable space, they demand it. Especially when it comes to validating a property’s status as “green,” they continue to view LEED® certification as the industry standard. A lack of certification can actually become a disadvantage in the commercial real estate market.

And that’s where our competitive advantage comes in.

CBRE is by far the global leader in LEED, having approached a milestone in 2015 of helping clients to certify nearly 500 office projects. The active involvement of our sustainability practice leaders with our property management teams demonstrates CBRE’s deep commitment to delivering great outcomes for clients. We’re also the first company in the world to achieve WELL Certification for a commercial office space, which complements our Workplace360 initiative. So we understand the value that sustainability brings, both from an asset holder’s perspective and occupier experience.

But what distinguishes CBRE most as a trusted advisor on issues of sustainable space is the understanding that “green” is simply a term, and that health, wellness, carbon reduction, operational efficiency – it all contributes to the idea that, by working together, we can create better communities. And that’s when the business of green can become a truly positive force.
