Case Studies: Improving the environmental performance of existing commercial buildings

Cutting CO2 in commercial properties

Case studies frequently top the list of most popular content on 2degrees. So you might be interested to hear that the Better Buildings Partnership - a collaboration of 15 of the largest commercial property owners in the UK, in partnership with the Mayor of London - have published a new set highlighting the opportunities that exist to improve the environmental performance of existing commercial buildings.

The case studies showcase projects undertaken by the Better Buildings Partnership members - who include British Land, Grosvenor, Land Securities and Legal & General Property - and have undertaken practical measures to reduce energy and water use, improve waste management and develop effective landlord tenant partnerships.

Case studies include:

  • Retrofitting of a multi-occupied building at Legal & General Property’s 50 Pall Mall, where a £60,000 investment has resulted in savings of over £40,000 and 280 tonnes CO2 per year.
  • A new sustainable delivery and procurement strategy by Henderson for their retailers at the Brewery Shopping Centre, saving over 1,000 tonnes of CO2
  • A £4 million portfolio wide retrofit project by Transport for London, saving 2,400 tonnes CO2 a year across 22 buildings
  • Quintain encouraging students to reduce energy consumption at their IQ student accommodation with the chance of winning free pizza!
