CBRE on track with energy goals

CBRE, the real estate and investment firm, is on track to meet a series of emissions and energy reduction goals.

As part of the company’s eleventh annual Corporate Responsibility Report, "Sharing the Responsibility," CBRE highlighted a number of accomplishments. The report noted, "In 2016, we set an absolute goal to reduce Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2025 and 50% by 2035, using a baseline year of 2015. We have reduced Scope 2 emissions 26.3% from 2015 to 2017, so we are well on our way to achieving our 2025 goal of a 30% reduction." These reductions were achieved primarily through space attrition and efficiencies gained through the company’s Workplace360 initiative.

"CBRE is increasingly integrating corporate responsibility initiatives into our daily business practices. As a result, our business solutions are creating environmental, social and governance benefits for our company and our communities and better outcomes for our clients," said Bob Sulentic, CBRE’s president and chief executive officer.

Other highlights for the company include:  

  • During 2017, CBRE registered and benchmarked a record-breaking 6,197 buildings, representing more than 370.7 million square feet, in the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program. 
  • 118 CBRE offices totaling 3.4 million square feet, or approximately 77 percent of our global occupied space, are certified under green and/or healthy building schemes such as LEED, BREEAM and WELL.
