About us

EVORA is an independent, pan-European sustainability consultancy and software provider, specialising in (but not limited to) the commercial real estate sector.

We’re passionate about what we do, but equally recognise the commercial opportunity sustainability offers.

 

Our approach is to provide an exceptional level of service, delivered by experienced professionals, whilst ensuring solutions are practical, simple to understand and tailored to each client’s specific requirements.

As a full service provider, we work with clients across all sectors delivering a comprehensive range of sustainability solutions from board-level strategy and policy setting to delivering asset-level performance improvement and monitoring programmes.

Our approach

We recognise the emerging nature of sustainability, which brings new risks but also new market opportunities. At EVORA, we are able to apply our depth of knowledge and experience to help your organisation understand and manage these risks as well as realise the opportunities to protect and enhance the long term value of your assets.

Although the environmental landscape is becoming more complex, we apply a common sense approach which is both practical and creative to deliver the right solutions for our clients.

Although we are proud of the results we achieve for our clients, our values are equally important to us. We will always ensure the utmost integrity in all that we do. Being open and honest with a passion to deliver the best possible service is fundamental to the way we do business.

Strategy and policy

Many factors influence the rapidly changing environmental landscape, and it can be difficult to know how best to align your organisation to achieve an approach to sustainability that’s both appropriate and proportionate.

  • Regulation is getting tougher
  • Occupiers require cost-effective and healthy buildings
  • Investors expect assets to be managed in a sustainable manner to protect future value, whilst often requesting participation in external benchmark surveys (e.g. GRESB)

We can help simplify this complex and ever-evolving arena by supporting you in understanding your responsibilities, prioritising your actions and implementing the right sustainability strategy that will protect and enhance your future value.

Regulatory and risk management

Regulation is getting increasingly tougher with an abundance of legislative requirements:

  • Mandatory greenhouse gas reporting for listed companies
  • Phase 2 of the Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme, which will run until 2019
  • Article 8 (ESOS in UK) making energy assessments mandatory for many organisations across Europe
  • Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) for buildings from 2018

With regulation comes risk. The threat of being unable to let/sublet vacant buildings from 2018 if they don’t meet Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) will impact both landlords and occupiers alike.

However we also see regulation as a potential opportunity for our clients, and the recent Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), which requires energy assessments to be completed by obligated organisations, will help them to identify practical measures to reduce energy use and cost.

We have an excellent understanding of environmental legislation and can provide comprehensive support to ensure you’re meeting your current mandatory requirements as well as planning for future obligations.

Performance improvement

Improvements can be achieved through ad hoc measures. But we believe a more effective approach is to understand the current environmental performance across your business and assets, and prioritise actions based on materiality and risk profile.

We would then perform energy or broader sustainability assessments to make practical and clear recommendations for improvement, from which a sustainability business plan can be developed and implemented – either at asset level or across an organisation or portfolio.

As a full-solution provider we have an excellent track record of delivering improvement programmes which reduce environmental impact and cost, whilst improving energy ratings and mitigating against future risks of minimum energy efficiency requirements.

Monitoring and reporting

To understand your performance and make informed decisions, it’s necessary to monitor and report your environmental impacts. We have many years’ experience collating and validating energy and broader environmental data, as well as helping organisations set meaningful targets and identify key performance indicators.

Through our unique environmental management software SIERA, with its comprehensive reporting capability, we can provide an array of reports to meet regulatory requirements (e.g. CRC & GHG), external benchmark reporting (e.g. GRESB) and internal fund and corporate reporting.
