Building Engines, a JLL company, authored this CRE Playbook and published it on May 16, 2022. There is no choice but to face the current and future climate change-induced sustainability challenges for the CRE industry. CRE leaders must begin to do things differently in their buildings. Energy usage must decrease, and efficiency must improve. Tenant demands for healthier and more sustainable workplaces must be met. This playbook for achieving these goals involves technology. Technologies enable property teams to: enhance energy management practices; prioritize health, wellness, and air quality; perform proactive maintenance; prolong equipment lifetimes; measure and evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of existing systems; plan for capital investments; and achieve key energy certifications.
