At GVA, we believe that adopting a sustainability strategy is key to ensuring long term performance. For this reason, we have developed a number of services to assist our clients in defining a strategic approach to addressing sustainability - both at the corporate level, such as Responsible Property Investment policies, and at the fund level, such as environmental policies and implementation plans.
An effective implementation plan is an essential addition to any sustainability strategy. In order to monitor improvements and risks over time, it is important that clients identify clear processes around data collection, analysis and acquisition. GVA provides clients with a comprehensive range of services in this area, from pre-acquisition sustainability checklists to target setting.
As a result of increased regulation and investor pressure, the importance of non-financial reporting is growing significantly; and it is widely agreed that there are benefits for those companies who disclose their sustainability performance and efforts. Our reporting services address both regulatory (CRC, ESOS, GHG Reporting etc.) and voluntary (GRESB, IPD EcoPAS etc.) reporting.
GVA believes that property assets which operate in a more sustainable manner will generate better returns for our clients and reduce the risks of rising energy and climate change costs. We have developed a suite of practical and cost effective services to support our clients’ demands, such as EPC risk profiling and energy data analysis.
