Strategy & Disclosure (including TCFD)

Climate Resilience is gaining importance for Real Estate

Climate risk and transition opportunities are already impacting the way companies are run and how real estate assets are valued and financed. Rising temperatures, sea-levels, and an increase in extreme weather are just some of the physical risks that have begun to impact investment decisions.

TCFD disclosures are becoming mandatory 

Many governments are introducing obligatory climate-related financial disclosures, based on the TCFD framework developed by the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosures – since 2022,  reporting is required in the UK whilst the US and the EU are gearing up to introduce similar mandates and reporting standards.

What we offer

EVORA has expert knowledge of Climate Resilience, climate-related disclosure frameworks (TCFD), regulations (FCA, SEC, SFDR) and standards (ISSB) and experience in evaluating climate risks and opportunities for commercial real estate, in actual and financial terms. Our interdisciplinary team guides our clients through the process of risk screening, assessment and quantification, climate strategy development and implementation and preparation of disclosure. We collaborate closely with our Green Finance team who support our clients on establishing and operating green finance frameworks.

Turn climate risks into opportunities through targeted action plans

Net Zero

Net Zero is the buzzword in the industry, with the UK becoming the first major economy in the world to pass laws requiring net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The journey to net zero is an ambitious challenge, but also a wonderful opportunity.

Achieving ambitious sustainability goals such as net zero carbon will require wholesale review of your organisation’s business strategy. We can work with all stakeholders in your organisation to integrate net zero throughout the entire investment process – from acquisition to disposal – and help prepare practical and deliverable action plans that will put you on a pathway to net zero.

EVORA is a proud signatory of the WGBC Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment.

The Commitment calls upon business, organisations, cities, states and regions to take urgent, courageous and immediate climate action towards decarbonising the built environment and reach Net Zero operating emissions in their portfolios by 2030, and to advocate for all buildings to be Net Zero in operation by 2050.

Desk Based Net Zero Audits

In response to the increasing pressure our clients are experiencing in transitioning their assets to net zero, EVORA has designed a desk based net zero assessment solution.

It has been specifically designed to help our clients identify and implement improvement programmes at the asset level and compliments our current physical net zero audits, allowing clients to pick which type they need.

These audits are significantly cheaper compared to site based audits and are overseen by our net zero carbon engineering and energy management specialists.

Science Based Targets

We understand the diverse nature of real estate and the impact fund strategies have on carbon and energy reduction targets.

By using specialist methodologies and tools, we enable the development of your long-term targets running to 2030 and 2050.

We will work with you to set targets that are ambitious, credible, and achievable.

Embodied Carbon

Our team of consultants are skilled at completing embodied carbon assessments for new developments – and guiding design teams to minimise this large carbon impact for portfolios.

We can identify opportunities to reduce embodied carbon emissions at new developments – and quantify the impact of their progression on your bottom line.

Climate Resilience

Wherever your organization is in the process, we can help you progress your Climate Resilience, Net Zero and Disclosure strategies.
