Energy Performance, Sustainability and ESG
Environmental and social Governance is quite rightly one of the most important items on the agenda of property owners, investors and occupiers. The property and construction sectors are a huge source of carbon emissions globally. As property professionals we relish our responsibility and opportunity to play an important role in tackling climate change by the ways that we advise our clients across all of our service lines. Trident are currently undertaking a significant scope and variety of work for our clients that is primarily focused upon implementing ESG, energy performance and sustainability improvements to our client’s buildings. We are working alongside specialist partners including mechanical & electrical consultants, energy assessors and sustainability consultants to manage, coordinate and deliver as summarised below:
Technical Due diligence
Our technical due diligence reports (whether for purchaser or vendor) will provide a clear summary of the current energy performance along with recommendations and opportunities to improve this. Our advice is broadly geared towards the anticipated increase to the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) to a B rating by 2030 but we will also highlight other shortfalls and improvement opportunities that will enhance the ESG credentials of your asset.
Planned Preventative Maintenance
Trident believe that our client’s Decarbonisation roadmap should be linked in with a minimum 10 year planned preventative maintenance strategy. This allows our client’s to form a realistically planned and programmed budget to implement their ESG goals for a building or portfolio of buildings. A review of the buildings fabric and M&E condition (and life cycle) allows our clients to make informed decisions on the appropriate timing to undertake energy performance improvement works that have the best return on investment.
