My second, first job

Insights for prospective juniors who might not have had a job before, and what sets EVORA out from other organisations.

You could say that I’m a little bit longer in the tooth than your average Junior Consultant at the ripe old age of 28. I’ve found grey hairs, I make a strange noise whenever I have to pick something up off the floor or get up off the sofa, and TikTok just scares me to be honest.

However, although I might have lost some melanin over the years, I’ve gained some experience in the job market before becoming a Junior Consultant at EVORA; working in businesses from private start-ups to big multi-nationals with thousands of employees, and even a sprinkling of some public sector work.

My experience at EVORA has been different in a lot of ways to the organisations I have previously worked in, but here are the three things that I think set them apart from the rest, and that any prospective Junior should know.

The Culture

Organisations love to talk about their culture. It tends to be a buzzword that everyone uses and I know that when I hear it I’m often sceptical at best (cynical at worst). But there is genuinely a brilliant culture at EVORA and you honestly don’t quite believe it until you experience it first-hand.

EVORA work hard to make sure that everyone feels welcome, whether this is at a pizza and games night, office socials, volunteer days, or even a company-wide trip to the Lake District! You will have plenty of opportunities to get to know your colleagues on a personal level during activities unrelated to work.

On the work side of things, no matter who it is within the business, you’ll be greeted with a cheery smile and treated as one of the team straight away; and this is true regardless of where they are in the world, London, Milan, Hamburg, New York, Paris, Iasi, Bangalore or ESPECIALLY in sunny Bolton which is where I’m based. And if you have a concern about anything at all, you will ALWAYS get help. You’re encouraged to share ideas and if you feel there could be an improvement, don’t be shy; you can discuss it openly with your colleagues to find a solution and make things better. These might sound like small things, but they really do make all the difference.

Development

You don’t have all the answers right away, and that’s fine, no one expects you to! You are given formal training and will have a mentor to help you through the first few months of your time at EVORA. It’s a dynamic working environment in which you will be constantly upskilling and digesting knowledge on the real estate industry and ESG matters (and believe me there is a LOT to learn). EVORA invest in their people; and they understand that it is in their interest for you to possess more skills and knowledge, and encourage you to soak up as much as you can to deliver the high standard of work clients have come to expect. If you like to learn and improve your skillset, then EVORA will happily oblige and give you the opportunities for you to excel.

It’s also worth noting that you have a say in what you learn as well. If you hear of something interesting that another team might be doing, speak up and you can gain experience in that area by working with other colleagues. I work in the green finance team, but have had exposure to the work that the Net Zero team do, for example with on-site energy audits, and I’m currently working on a really interesting project for a socially sustainable life sciences fund – all within the first couple of months!

If you have a positive attitude, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn, then EVORA is the work environment for you.

Purpose

Finally, a big one for me personally, and the reason why I took the decision to make a career change and moved into sustainability in the first place – purpose. Investment and finance can mean many things to different people, but from my perspective it can be considered as the link between now and the future. This means that investment decisions that are made today will impact the look and feel of the world we will one day live in, and ultimately pass on to future generations.

EVORA (and every individual I’ve met so far in the company) are committed to planet and people, and this feeds through into the work that EVORA do to support its clients; helping them ensure that their investments decisions are robust and deliver positive outcomes beyond just the balance sheet. You can be proud of the work you do here, and that counts for something.

So long story short, it’s a great company to be part of. If you’ve made it to end of the blog, then hopefully that means you’re interested in being one of the team, and I hope we will see each other soon, and that your first few months at EVORA will be as enjoyable as mine have been. Good luck!

EVORA Global gains investment to support sustainability goals of clients around the world

Bridges Fund Management, MSCI and Farview Equity are backing the business to advance sustainable development goals in the global real estate industry

We are delighted to announce that EVORA Global has gained major backing from international investors in a funding round led by Bridges Fund Management, a specialist sustainable and impact investor.

EVORA already has a large roster of major clients, including Hines, M&G and Invesco Real Estate.

Our ESG data management platform, SIERA, currently holds ESG data for over 8000 major buildings globally.

The equity investment round will enable EVORA to expand our offering to support clients globally, while further developing our tech platform.

The investment includes support from MSCI and Farview Equity which, along with Bridges, will take a seat on the EVORA board.  The mission critical decision support tools, insights and market access provided by the consortium will further aid our growth and maximise the value of our ESG and Climate solutions to the global real asset investment community.

EVORA was founded in 2011 by Chris Bennett, Paul Sutcliffe and Ed Gabbitas, and has rapidly grown over the past two years as demand for action on sustainable finance and climate risk has risen up the agenda.

“When we founded this business over a decade ago, people didn’t want to talk about climate risk or sustainability. It was a real battle to even get a meeting. Now, we are experiencing huge demand for our services globally as the world has woken up to the risks of climate change. Our client base is made up of leading asset managers and owners, and they have been asking us to support them globally. This funding enhances our ability to support them and to improve our technology and advisory services globally. We wanted investors who were aligned with our vision. We had a lot of options, but Bridges really stood out for its commitment to sustainability and impact investing, as well as being a B Corp. Working with MSCI will broaden our ability to drive positive impact, helping our clients with their sustainable development goals while widening our global reach. Farview’s experience of growing enterprise technology companies will transform our SIERA software and support its international growth.”

Chris Bennett, EVORA Managing Director & Co-Founder

“Real estate is a significant contributor to global carbon emissions, so EVORA’s tools and services can play an important role in reducing emissions and building a more sustainable economy. We think there’s a significant commercial and impact opportunity here. So we’re excited to partner with this excellent team and help the business scale, drawing on Bridges’ 20 years’ experience of helping ambitious companies to accelerate their growth and achieve more impact.”

Emma Thorne, Partner at Bridges

“High quality data is an essential part of commercial real asset investors’ ability to develop effective strategies, built upon the in-depth evaluation of portfolio and asset climate risk. The combination of EVORA’s tools for climate data management and advisory services, together with MSCI’s robust climate risk models and indexes, will help to improve the flow of critical decision data and accelerate the adoption of climate standards and thereby to strengthen the global real asset investment process. MSCI is committed to providing critical decision support tools that help investment managers to build better portfolios and, in this collaboration with EVORA, we will better serve the evolving needs of our shared and new clients.”

René Veerman, Head of Real Assets

“We believe meeting the demands of climate change across global real estate portfolios will continue to need powerful software tools able to both track environmental impact and project future economic risks. SIERA has many of the right ingredients around data quality and deep industry understanding to enable these features within its software. We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with the team at the company to help realise that vision for the benefit of all stakeholders.”

Guy Sochovsky, Partner, Farview

EVORians sweatin’ it out’

Fresh on the heels of our Walk This May challenge, we kept our fingers on the pulse with our June Bootcamp.

You are probably aware that June is known as GRESB season at EVORA. For our consultants, this is the biggest deadline of the year, with a larger than normal workload. It can be super stressful, so the Health and Wellness team wanted to make sure the activities and theme this month fitted in with the consultants’ busy schedules and helped them combat stress and keep a healthy mindset.

Therefore, we had Liam, a personal trainer and nutritional coach, run two sessions a week for the company, via Teams. This was optional to join, with no commitment to come to every session. It was important to us that it was held virtually so that anyone from the company could join in, no matter where they are located.

On Wednesdays, we met at 8:40am GMT to have a HIIT (high intensity interval training) session. As the name suggests, this really got us going before work on a Wednesday. It was great to see colleagues from around Europe join in and exercise together. It was great how we managed to warm up and down and still get a great heart pumping session in, all in 20 minutes.

Exercise is so important to mental wellbeing, getting the blood flowing, reducing anxiety and increasing cognitive functions. It’s also a great way to stay fit, especially for us office based lot who are used to a more sedentary lifestyle. Sara soon realized that when she works out in the morning “my mood is much better and I eat healthier during the day”

These HIIT sessions were great at working up a sweat and putting you in the right frame of mind for the rest of the day. EVORians were encouraged, and for Emma “doing the energiser has made me feel more alert and ready to crack on.”

On the Friday session, we slowed it down with a more sedate session. This one was held at lunchtime and had us stretching and releasing all the built up tension from the week. This was a great way to end the week, and Sarah felt it was “lovely to spend some time undoing all the hours of sitting that I do in a week.”

Straight after the more relaxed session was our regular meditation meeting on Teams. We’ve had this weekly since lockdown and is now led by one of our very own – Matt has been meditating daily for 7 years now and knows the importance of breathing exercises and meditation for both the mind and body.

Matt uses Headspace for the sessions, which all EVORians have access to once they’ve passed their probation. These sessions are a personal highlight of my week, giving me 15 minutes to breathe and take a second to align my thoughts and meditate. Like the bootcamp, there is no pressure to come to every session and anyone can join wherever they are based.

After this month, many of us are committed to keeping up a HIIT session weekly – that adrenaline rush after a workout is hard to beat and the positive effects for the rest of the day huge. As Andrea said, the exercise “helps to focus my mind on something else.  I feel like I can concentrate better afterwards.” Whether this was people’s first time trying HIIT or they are regulars at the gym, we have all seen the benefits of adding a 20 minute session to our weekly routines.

Huge thanks to Liam for leading the sessions this month.

Inside EVORA’s Offices

In 2021, we decided to move our London Head Office to somewhere more aligned with our identity and values. We were looking for a space with plenty of natural lighting, good ventilation and air quality system. We put together a focus group, the ENO (EVORA New Office) Group, which involved people from different locations globally, to go through office options, valuing the whole team’s opinions and input. That’s how we chose Birrane House in London Bridge where we moved in January 2022.

We are very proud of our new office, which is a bigger and better space, well-lit with larger desks, as well as a great break-out room for lunches and socials. The air conditioning unit also allows for ventilation of clean air, so we can keep an eye on our air quality and carbon dioxide levels regularly – 83% of our London office rate the air quality at four or five out of five!

It’s so important to check CO2 levels, as this can have a huge effect on everyone in the office – studies have shown that poor air quality can affect you short term, such as headaches, fatigue, irritation of the eyes and throat, and even allergic reactions. Long term effects can include sinus infections and even respiratory issues.

As well as looking after the physical health of everyone in the office, we want to ensure that we are on track to get Planet Mark certification for the 9th year in a row! Our new London office is optimised to achieve this, with lights automatically turning off without activity, excellent insulation and double glazing.

Now that we’ve been in Birrane House a few months, and people are feeling settled, we wanted to know what everyone felt about the office. This is in keeping with our values, as we believe in inclusion, collaboration and respect as three of the fundamentals of our company.

We sent out a survey primarily to see how the new Head Office was working for people and to understand what could be improved, but also took the opportunity to check in with EVORians in our other offices and those working from home to make our workplace better. This really helped build up a larger picture of how everyone at EVORA is doing and to prioritise the next steps in all our locations.

We had 95 responses, 53 of them were from London. It was great to see that overall the average rating people gave the new London office was 4.3 out of 5!

We were delighted to see that a lot of the ideas that came up are either already in progress or even available now, such as the socials that the Social Committee are organising. We just had a Pizza and Games night that was a huge success. This was in London, Bolton, Iasi and Berlin! There were tactical games, quick-fire games, and classic quiz games – something for everyone to play. There was also great feedback on the Coffee Roulette and Language Exchange initiatives that we have, with an overwhelming response that this is what people enjoy doing.

Coffee Roulette is where two people get paired up each month and between themselves arrange a half hour sit down, either in person or via Teams. As people are paired up randomly, it gives everyone an opportunity to meet others in the company who they may have never spoken to before.

The Language Exchange is a more recent initiative whereby staff who speak other languages are put into groups with a native or fluent speaker and can practise their language skills. As well as helping EVORians improve their understanding of foreign languages, many groups who would never have normally met did so during their regular working day.

Regarding the office itself, EVORians love the location and proximity to Borough Market, as well as the brightness and the size of the office; in the survey, 89.2% rated the lighting in the office at four or five out of five. We saw from the survey results that most people would like us to look into noise-cancelling equipment, on top of the noise-cancelling headphones already provided. It is now on the EVORA’s to-do list to look into sound absorbers or individual soundproof meeting booths.

A great idea that came from the survey was adding social time at the beginning of meetings, where we can do a fun poll, such as which superpower would you have, and to give people time to catch up before jumping into the meeting. At EVORA, we truly love all ideas that get everyone involved, no matter where they are located.

One thing that is being globally felt is the changing nature of the use of the office. The traditional office set-up is no longer the best fit in a post-Covid world, where working from home has proved to be successful and productive. Even if around 90% of EVORians come in for a maximum of two days per week currently, 91% of us feel part of the team. What this means for our offices is yet to be seen, but could result in a renovation or reorganisation of the office into more collaboration spaces and fewer desks. Watch this space!

We can’t wait to make some more positive changes to our offices, making a comfortable and welcoming space for all EVORians to work.

Meike Borchers adds European weight to the monthly EVORA Global Board meeting

EVORA’s Core Board has strengthened its operational focus with the addition of five non-statutory operational directors appointed in the last two years. EVORA’s headcount has grown from 50 to over 150 since 2020, with operations in seven countries and plans for further expansion this year.

“The positive impact we create as EVORA team and with our clients is what highly motivates me every day and there is so much more for us to do. I am therefore thrilled to represent our fast-developing DACH ESG-Team at Board level and to become even more involved in shaping the future of EVORA.”

EVORA is excited to welcome Valentina Mauro as Head of Italy. In addition, we have two sustainability consultants joining the EVORA Italy team this month, as demand for EVORA’s ESG advisory and software services to some of Italy’s leading real estate and financial organisations continues to grow.

Paul Sutcliffe, Founder and Executive Director

10 Years of EVORA

It started out as a table on a spreadsheet. A handful of prospects with some numbers against them that added up to £360k. It was September 2010 and I was 44. It was a now or never moment. I’d always wanted to run my own business from a young age, but doing what? For the first time in my life I knew exactly what, there was no doubt in my mind.

I’d trained as an accountant with PWC, left to travel the world with Schlumberger, an oil and gas contractor, dabbled briefly in telecoms and then emersed myself in property for nine years at DTZ. And it was at DTZ that two independent events occurred, which together lit the touch paper and set me off on my journey.

The first event was pure irony. DTZ had invested in a professional coach for me and after a few sessions, my coach said “You don’t fit in the corporate world. I suggest you leave and set up your own business”!

The second event was a Dragons Den type competition where a number of us were asked to pitch to the DTZ Board and management team, an idea or project to invest in. Having been a keen advocate of DTZ’s small sustainability team, I pitched to significantly expand the team and develop a sustainability software platform for the real estate industry. I came last with one vote.

Less than a year later I had left DTZ with my £360k prospect list and a sketchy business plan to create a market-leading sustainability business for the real estate investment market. I just needed some help.

A quick trip to Bolton and Paul Sutcliffe was on board once I’d persuaded his wife Eleanor what a great opportunity it was. Paul was sustainability Director at DTZ and had fantastic technical knowledge.

Evora Siera ESG reporting team

One down one to go. Ed Gabbitas, another great technical consultant, signed up shortly afterwards who jumped at the opportunity. Job done. Three is never a crowd for a new business, it’s the magic number. It provided just the right mix of skills, lots of ideas to bounce off one another and most importantly, a level of resilience. Evora was formed – well, not quite. We started off as Sustainable Commercial Solutions but that’s quite a mouthful. The EVORA name came later.

That was ten years ago. If the strapline back then was “Sounds interesting but maybe next year”, now it’s more like “I need an ESG strategy, can you start Monday”! A lot has changed over those ten years and we’ve been very fortunate with the way market sentiment has changed towards climate change. But it’s also been tough at times and a lot of hard work. When I told Mandy, my wife, my plans, her first comment was, ”Can’t you just get a job like a normal person” but her support has been unwavering. As for Paul and Ed, I marvel at just how amazing they are – no more to be said.

If 3 was the magic number back then, 10 years on it feels like 100 is the magic number now. Having recently employed our 100th employee and gained our 100th client, we’re set to achieve 100% growth this year. If that wasn’t enough we are also bringing a number of highly innovative software products to the market this year through our SIERA ESG platform.

Are we the market-leading sustainability business for the real estate investment market? Maybe, maybe not, it depends who you ask, but I don’t think that’s important anymore. As a business we have a bigger purpose, ‘To accelerate the evolution of real estate sustainability for the planet and its people’, and that is an ambition that needs the whole industry to get behind and collaborate on.

And behind the numbers is an incredible bunch of people at EVORA who all really care – for one another, for the work they do, for their clients and for our planet. Here’s looking forward to the next 10 years.

Finally, for those wondering or vaguely interested, of the £360k of prospects on my sketchy business plan that I enticed Paul and Ed with, £11k came off. And why EVORA? EVOlution of Real Assets through sustainability – you know it makes sense 😊

EVORA Global becomes PRI Signatory

EVORA Global has become a signatory to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), underlining our commitment to advancing the evolution and adoption of real asset sustainability, and building a globally responsible investment community with ESG at its core.

The PRI works to understand the investment implications of ESG factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

The principles were developed by investors, for investors and by implementing them, signatories contribute to developing a more sustainable global financial system. 

Principle 1: to incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
Principle 2: to be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our Group’s ownership policies and practices.
Principle 3: to seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities through which our Group invests.
Principle 4: to promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
Principle 5: to work together to enhance effectiveness in implementing the Principles and
Principle 6: to report on activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.

Rahul Gautam, EVORA’s Strategy Manager said:

As a business EVORA Global is committed to Principles of Responsible Investment, and as a service provider, we actively support and endorse PRI among our clients. Regulations, reporting frameworks, and the industry as a whole are witnessing a shift in investment philosophies. We believe the ESG investment approach is on the rise (for all the right reasons), and institutions like PRI supports the acceleration and adoption of a sustainable ecosystem.”

EVORA has deep experience in both creating robust Responsible Investment strategies and frameworks as well as on the ground expertise in the implementation of these, and reporting on their results.

We are already working with many leading investment firms across a wide of sectors, including private equity, institutional investors and fund-of-fund managers.
