An international approach to sustainable development

The BRE Group brings over 90 years of research and innovation in the built environment and a global reputation for standards and certification to the challenge of sustainability on an international level.

We help our clients develop a strategic approach to sustainability, encompassing business practices, processes and the entire supply chain. Our work supports the delivery of our clients' overall business vision in a way that is both sustainable to the environment and the economic performance of your company or development project.

We strive to build long term partnerships with our clients to ensure that sustainability is integrated across day-to-day operations. Our support at strategic, policy and project level ensures that corporate and project goals are well defined, achievable and clearly communicated to staff, shareholders, customers, local planning authorities and the general public.

Our consultancy is backed by our world class expertise in building technologies, environmental assessment and best practice. This allows us to take a holistic approach, focusing on critical aspects including procurement, carbon emissions, water use, materials, biodiversity and travel.

To cater for the diverse sustainable development requirements of our international clients, our core product range is designed with the aim of producing a bespoke sustainability strategy for every project in mind. Our key service offerings include:

  • Corporate sustainability strategy development
  • Property management
  • Carbon management
  • Dynamic masterplanning
  • Design charrettes
  • Energy strategies.

Some of our clients have aspirations to become sustainability leaders whilst others are simply looking for compliance or cost reduction. Our bespoke service means that whatever stage of the process a client is at, we adapt our approach to suit.
