We are committed to implementing and continuously improving the efficiency and sustainability of our facilities throughout the delivery process.

Embedding these practices in our approach to development enables Equation Properties to implement innovative technologies to meaningfully lower the levels of negative environmental, economic and social impact, which aligns our goals with potential occupiers and joint venture partners.

Our base specification ensures our developments are recognised in the top 10% of sustainable ratings and performance for new commercial buildings.

KEY SUSTAINABILITY DRIVERS

BREEAM 2018

BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle.

EPC

EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate and rates how energy efficient your building is using grades from A to G (with ‘A+’ the most efficient grade).

NET ZERO CARBON

A Net Zero Carbon development refers to balancing the amount of emitted greenhouse gases with the equivalent emissions through technologies and offsetting strategies.

Implemented Practices in Our Developments
