Stakeholders are increasingly informing their decisions based on ESG (environmental, social and governance) credentials and  Investors are favouring businesses with robust ESG frameworks and clear net zero and sustainability goals.

Commercial property owners will be expected to achieve a minimum Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of at least C, if not B, by 1 April 2030 for their portfolios, as well as being required to comply with more stringent inspections of heating and air conditioning systems.

Property owners and occupiers can expect the energy efficiency of buildings to become more closely scrutinised in the next few months and years and with rising energy costs, there is an additional incentive to act now.

Smart Places can improve your energy efficiency and EPC rating and save you money; making your buildings more attractive for investors, operators and your workforce.
