A core set of sustainability provisions that should "form the foundation of how sustainability is incorporated into any property management service offering" have been launched.
Integrating Sustainability into Property Management Services: Core Provisions will be backed by the Better Buildings Partnership Managing Agents Partnership, a collaboration of the UK's commercial property owners who are working together to improve the sustainability of existing commercial building stock.
The document sets out the core activities that should be undertaken by any managing agent as part of their standard property management offering to clients.
They have been prepared to be applicable across the entire commercial property sector and all members of the Partnership have committed to incorporate these provisions within their property management offers to clients.
In addition, it provides detailed guidance for each of these activities on why they should be of interest to agents and how they can practically approach their implementation.
