Thought Leadership

Evaluating the additionality of carbon reduction through flexibility to carbon signals, its site and grid level decarbonisation impacts.

Bulb Foundation - The Hidden Carbon Economy

How daily, local energy investment and operational decisions in buildings and cities can be forces for national decarbonisation

The design and operation of buildings must be aligned with the drive to low energy and net zero carbon targets, including the UK’s legal obligation under the Climate Change Act 2008 to reach net zero carbon by 2050. A key part in meeting this obligation involves nearly eliminating the carbon emissions associated with, and reducing energy usage and losses in, all aspects of the built environment. Greater electrification of building services, coupled with energy efficiency and a low carbon electricity supply system, is one of the key solutions, but brings the need for new and enhanced guidance for effective delivery.

Driving decarbonisation for the built environment

This report compiles the findings and recommendations of the Green Finance Institute's Coalition for the Energy Efficiency of Buildings (CEEB) to establish a standardised, industry-recognised protocol to 'meter' energy savings in UK buildings. The protocol seeks to provide actionable data and real-time performance monitoring to creat confidence and certainty around retrofit performance. This

Modernising Energy Data Access

Ice Breaker One

Open Energy Data

The scope and aims of this framework are to:• highlight best practice and provide useful content for the real estate management industry on how it should operate in a more responsible and ethical manner • influence clients, landlords and owners/occupiers in their thinking, planning and expectations on services required • provide clarity on the relationship with all stakeholders for improved engagement across the supply chain • provide a global approach towards embedding environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into the management of real estate • provide clarity on the terminology and definitions for responsible business and ESG • provide alignment with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) and other global reporting frameworks in demonstrating impacts on society and the environment and • highlight the important role that property, and the people and organisations involved in its management, can play in the creation of lasting social value.
