The importance of ESG criteria in real estate

Jean-Philippe Carmarans • 08/09/2022

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are a set of standards for a company’s behavior used by socially conscious investors to screen potential investments.. Beyond the simple economic aspect, these criteria take into account the social and environmental impacts of activities in the workplace. The Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria thus take into account the actions of a company or a sector in the areas of ecology, labor rights and governance. 

Cushman & Wakefield France has developed the first independent tool for analyzing the overall ESG performance of buildings to help owners, investors, users and financial institutions better measure the quality of their assets (Offices, Retail, Logistics, etc.) on all the main environmental, social and governance criteria. Developed in collaboration with N'CO Conseil, this tool assesses the positioning of all types of assets (Offices, Retail Logistics, etc.) in relation to regulatory expectations (European taxonomy, tertiary decree) and market standards.

What is an ESG grid?

An ESG grid is a tool for rating the ESG performance of a building. It allows us to know if a building is very efficient or at the other extreme underperforming, and to define areas for improvement.
