CSR, carbon footprints, EPC's, DEC's, carbon reduction... these are part of a growing list of sustainability, buzzwords and acronyms in our industry, but they all have their roots in one discipline – efficiency.
With a wealth of government incentives - such as tax credits, interest free loans, grants and feed-in tariffs - there has never been a better time to capitalise on efficiency and sustainability.
At the same time, there is also the risk of significant penalties for non compliance as the government starts to use increasingly tough legislation to crack down on companies with inefficient property portfolios.
Then there are the increased expectations of the public that businesses and their properties will be 'green', which can also affect buyer and tenant decisions.
Are you aware of the incentives available? Do you know where you are potentially exposed?
