The real estate leader’s guide to decarbonizing your portfolio

Learn how to cut carbon emissions from your real estate portfolio

June 23, 2022

Have you set a science-based target or net zero commitment? If so, you’ll need a real estate-specific strategy that cuts carbon emissions to meet your goals.

Why? The built environment is the world’s single largest carbon emitter – ahead of industry and transportation. That’s why your corporate real estate portfolio is instrumental to the success of your organization’s sustainability plan, which hinges on your ability to reduce carbon emissions.

Whether pursuing science-based targets or a net-zero commitment, there is strong momentum toward doing what it takes to achieve the Paris Agreement’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The race is on to limit the global temperature increase in this century to 2°C (or 3.6°F) above pre-industrial levels, with a strong push to limit the increase to 1.5°C (or 2.7 °F). Your real estate footprint can play a big part in achieving those goals.

In this ebook, you’ll learn how to:

  • Baseline your portfolio’s emissions

  • Measure and track carbon output

  • Compare your current performance to industry benchmarks

  • Find a framework for success

  • Implement a central database

  • Refine your KPIs to achieve maximum impact
