Industries & Sectors


Climate change and limited natural resources mean that the traditional approaches of the property sector need to change radically. 

Here at Cushman & Wakefield we believe that property should be sustainable.

We are at the heart of this transition and are fully committed to reducing our own and our clients' environmental impact throughout the property lifecycle.

Sustainable portfolios also have significant commercial benefits; they have a reduced risk of obsolescence, lower operational costs, better occupier retention and greater social impact – all the things we believe in as a company.

How we can help

An overview of our Sustainability Services:

  • ESG strategy

    Our sustainability consultants support you in developing an ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategy that suits your organization. With our real estate and sustainability knowledge, we work with you from strategy to execution on a future-proof organization and / or real estate portfolio. In view of the developments in the market, trends in the field of sustainability and tightening laws and regulations, our experts provide advice on the most current sustainability issues and prepare you for the future.
  • Sustainability reports

    Future-proofing is increasingly important and the government, banks and investors increasingly focus specifically on sustainability performance. Reporting on sustainability-related topics becomes an important tool to give investors insight into the performance of your portfolios. Our experts support you in reporting in accordance with the frameworks of GRESB, GRI, TCFD and UN Sustainable Development Goals, among others.
  • Climate risk reports

    Want to know the climate risk of your investment portfolio? Our expects can assist you in not only undertaking the climate risk analysis (using ArcGIS and the CRREM tool), but also in translating physical and transition risk to value at risk. We can support this process as part of your risk management strategy in accordance with GRESB, TCFD and the EU Taxonomy.  
  • Trends in the market

    We focus on important developments in the field of sustainability in our advice. Our experts support you with topics such as climate adaptation, climate risks, Paris Proof, future-proofing, circularity and help you apply these topics to your real estate.

A city full of green is not valued enough

A green environment or fresh air is not often a reason to live in a city, rather the opposite. It is often a reason to escape the city at the weekend and visit nature, or even to live elsewhere.

The future-proof city

Why the finance market is deteriorating quickly

In recent months, partly due to the war in Ukraine, capital market interest rates and inflation have risen sharply, resulting in significantly higher financing costs for property investors and project developers. The liquidity surcharge is also back. “The situation on the financing market is changing rapidly.”
