Commercial real estate sustainability practices

Achieve your sustainability goals and add value to your community

Environmental impact and sustainability practices are top-of-mind for owners, occupiers and employees alike. By focusing on ESG, companies can add value to their businesses, portfolios and buildings. Whether you want to improve energy efficiency, reduce your carbon footprint, explore “green” design, or need construction management services, Avison Young offers a full range of sustainability consulting and management services for real estate owners and occupiers.

For owners, every property presents unique challenges for meeting sustainability goals. A building’s age, physical state and previous capital improvements all affect a building’s environmental performance and the steps an owner should take to improve efficiency and reduce the asset`s carbon footprint.

Whether occupiers are building out new or existing facilities, they need to align to their company’s sustainability goals, develop comprehensive strategies and understand and apply the latest technologies and industry best practices.

To meet the unique needs and goals of every assignment, our team of sustainability experts and LEED-AP professionals provides skilled oversight in energy management, construction, site selection, entitlements, lease negotiations, pre-construction and design services, as well as vendor hiring and management. For clients who want to implement sustainable solutions without pursuing LEED, we utilize LEED checklists to target high impact areas and work with consultants, contractors and vendors to achieve client goals.
