GRESB, or Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmarking, is an international investor-driven organisation working to promote reporting of sustainability performance in buildings. GRESB is widely used by property investors wishing to invest in buildings with a green profile and lower risk.
GRESB offers building owners and managers a number of benefits, including a consistent framework for collating and comparing sustainability indicators across global property portfolios.
Entro has extensive experience of assisting our customers through the entire reporting process and ensuring continual improvements to their score year after year.
BREEAM In-Use is an international certification scheme which ranks sustainability performance in existing buildings for the benefit of building owners and managers looking to reduce their environmental impact and running costs. There are several advantages of obtaining BREEAM In-Use certification, including increased property value and a better indoor climate for the building’s users.
Entro staff have been thoroughly trained in BREEAM In-Use and can help you carry out activities leading to certification. We will consider your level of ambition and tailor a programme to suit your company’s wishes and needs.
Energy rating is an important green initiative in Norway and has been mandatory for all non-residential buildings larger than 1,000 m2 since 2010. When we assess a building’s energy performance we ensure that all the criteria stipulated by the energy rating regulations are met.
Assessing a building’s energy performance is highly useful not only in order to comply with the law but also to achieve a more energy-efficient building. Classifying buildings in accordance with the energy rating scheme is also a key factor in obtaining green financing from banks, and it is possible to save considerable sums by having a good energy rating.
With wide-ranging expertise in this field, Entro can help with advice, analyses and energy performance assessments of all types of buildings. We ensure that the correct rating is given and produce a to-do list to show you what you can do to reduce peak loads and cut energy and water use.
If you wish, we can follow up on the actions you take, report the results and identify which buildings to focus on next. For customers with large property portfolios we can also collate and organise the energy ratings for all the buildings in the portfolio. This will give you clear information about the potential for improvements and a tool for achieving an even higher rating.
Take control and see how your buildings are performing.
Entro is familiar with all relevant certification and benchmarking systems, and our experienced advisors have the knowledge needed for seamless certification and benchmarking of your company.
