Cushman & Wakefield Polska Sp. z o.o.: Cushman & Wakefield expanding its sustainability services


Cushman & Wakefield, the leading global real estate services firm, expands its sustainability and ESG[1] services. With the aim to mitigate the impact on the environment by property development, operation and demolition, the firm provides its clients with a comprehensive service offering that can enable them to run their real estate business in line with new sustainability demands, trends and regulations. In the Central and Eastern European region, Tereza Jelínková will lead the co-ordination of Cushman & Wakefield’s Sustainability teams.

For Cushman & Wakefield, sustainability and ESG have been one of its priorities. Recently, the firm has announced ambitious science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi): reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions across its corporate offices and operations 50% by 2030 from a 2019 base year, and engage its key clients, some of the world’s largest real estate owners and occupiers, representing 70% of emissions at its managed properties (scope 3) to set science-based targets by 2025. In addition, by signing up to the Business Ambition for 1.5ºC campaign, the firm pledges to reach net zero emissions across its entire value chain (scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 2050.

Jonathan Hallett, Head of Central & Eastern Europe, Cushman & Wakefield: “With buildings generating a significant portion of the world’s carbon emissions, we recognize Cushman & Wakefield plays a vital role in shaping a sustainable future for the real estate industry. We will therefore focus efforts on reducing emissions from our own operations (direct emissions and those from purchased heat and electricity), and from the facilities we manage on behalf of our clients, real estate owners and occupiers. We will assist them in setting their own sustainability targets, and crucially help them achieve them."

Decreasing properties’ environmental impact

In the CEE region, Cushman & Wakefield now expands its existing sustainability and ESG services, offering clients with comprehensive advisory. Property owners or occupiers can receive specific and individual recommendations on decreasing the environmental impact of their building, and help with their implementation. They will benefit not only from the lower burden their property generates, but also from its higher operational efficiency, getting their buildings ready to meet future demands and regulatory requirements, and keeping them on a competitive level.
