Sustainable Property & Real Estate

The real estate sector is at the heart of the sustainability debate, not least because it gives rise to almost 50% of the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions through the construction and occupation of buildings, as well as being a vast consumer of water and materials, and a major producer of waste.

Many organisations, especially corporate and consumer-facing businesses, now see their buildings as fundamental to their brand communication, staff retention and, most importantly, a visible reflection of how they do business.

Deloitte offers a full range of sustainable property and real estate sustainability services that combines the expertise of Drivers Jonas Deloitte, Deloitte and dcarbon8. We offer a full range of range of building carbon management services, including full embodied and lifecycle building carbon management, reduction strategies, renewables and low carbon materials.

Our services

  • Building Carbon Management Services
    Buildings account for a significant proportion of global carbon emissions. Much emphasis has been placed on reductions of carbon emissions from managing buildings. However operational emissions can represent less than 50% of total emissions over the full lifecycle of a building; the remainder from construction, maintenance and end-of-life. We provide full building carbon management services to help developers and occupiers manage and reduce their total carbon footprint from design to demolition.
  • Responsible Property Investment
    We provide a range of advisory services to institutional and private equity investors to ensure a holistic approach to the investment and management of property that addresses risks and opportunities relating to sustainability across the triple bottom line. We have developed a range of tools and valuation-focused analytical techniques to support investors and fund managers in their fiduciary duties and to guard against the risk of accelerated investment depreciations.
  • Sustainable Estates
    There is an explicit link between people, space, energy and resources, cost, and carbon – each driving demand for the other. We provide a comprehensive approach to all these inter-related issues to help achieve maximum benefit in terms of addressing sustainability, operational efficiency and productivity for both commercial and public sector clients.
  • Sustainable Design & Development
    We provide a specialised planning and sustainable design service for sites and capital projects where sustainability is a key client or stakeholder issue. Our service extends from individual property design, to environmental master planning and even city and regional planning and development advice. We also offer a full BREEAM assessment and advisory service.
