Great podcast from twodegrees on the subject of Tackling Sustainability in Commercial Real Estate: The Better Buildings Partnership.

Podcast is an interview with two members of the Better Buildings Partnership, whose aim is ‘to develop solutions to improve the sustainability of London’s existing commercial building stock and achieve substantial CO2 savings in support of the Mayor’s target of 60 per cent by 2025’.

The BBP has developed a number of toolkits – available on their site publications.

The interviewees also make a number of very good points re the commercial reality surrounding building retrofit projects in the London area – in terms of the relatively small % of savings to be made, in the context of other current costs.

The toolkits themselves are well worth reading for those interested in the sector and seeking to develop structured approaches.
