A Structured Methodology for Planning Commercial Real Estate Portfolio Decarbonization

As the demand for greener building practices continue to rise, the commercial real estate market is being challenged more than ever by the race to net-zero carbon.

We already know how to build a carbon neutral, energy efficient building from scratch, but how about the 50% of 2050’s buildings that already exist today?

Based on a successful collaborative study between Brookfield Assset Management, WSP and Schneider Electric, this whitepaper provides a recommended 6-initiative process that commercial real estate teams can use to analyze and prioritize brownfield modernization projects across large asset portolios to achieve decarbonization with maximum payback and minimal distruption to occupants.
