Frequently asked questions

What are Green Buildings?

Green buildings are buildings that take the environment into account. They are built using construction techniques that minimise energy, waste and water consumption. But there are things you can do to make existing buildings into green buildings, too. Green buildings can be found all over: from schools and homes to sports clubs and offices.

What are the advantages of green buildings?

Green buildings offer many advantages. They use the latest techniques to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. That means users benefit from lower energy bills and a better living environment. For investors and property managers, green buildings bring higher returns.

How do you make buildings sustainable and green?

A green building starts at the design stage. For example, the use of sustainable building materials, green energy and a good fit with the environment in which the building is located must be considered. Existing buildings can be made more sustainable by using the right insulation materials and additional energy-saving measures.

What is the Green Buildings Tool?

The Green Buildings Tool (GBT) is a digital energy consulting solution designed to evaluate the energy efficiency of real estate properties. Users can utilize this tool to assess the energy performance of buildings, retrieving current Energy Performance scores or certificates (either actual or proxy, depending on data availability). Additionally, the GBT calculates carbon emissions and offers customized suggestions for energy efficiency enhancements at the building level. The tool therewith also provides useful information for CSRD compliance and other legal obligations.

Whether evaluating individual buildings or entire portfolios at scale, this real estate reporting tool provides tailored recommendations to promote greener, more sustainable practices.

What kind of management information does the Green Buildings Tool offer?

The tool offers valuable insights to enhance the energy efficiency of your portfolio. It provides sustainable business cases for individual properties as well as at the portfolio level. By evaluating factors such as investment, energy savings, carbon emission reduction, and enhancements in local energy ratings, it enables comprehensive strategic decision-making. Moreover, the tool generates compelling business cases that can assist management in making informed decisions regarding investment and loan portfolios.

Can the Tool be offered as a full white label solution?

The fully licenced Tool is a white-labelled platform with flexibility for customisation, which offers two types of customisation: a comprehensive version and a lite version. In the comprehensive version, clients can personalise text, fonts, colours, images, logos and dedicated landing pages unless otherwise specified in the proposal. For a simpler customisation approach, the lite version allows clients to change the primary and secondary colours and incorporate their logo. This usually goes hand in hand with shared hosting instead of dedicated hosting for environments with comprehensive customisation. Additional customisation possibilities can be explored upon client request, considering the necessary resources and budget.

We offer a high level of customization, allowing full branding and customization of the frontend styling of the tool. Collaboration with marketing and branding teams ensures the styling is accurately implemented, and adjustments to the customization can be made as needed throughout the tool’s usage.

What insights does the Green Buildings Tool provide, and how can clients utilize this information?

The Green Building Assessment Tool provides rapid insights and tailored recommendations for a client’s retrofitting business case. While the case for retrofitting is unique to each client, these insights serve as valuable guidelines. Clients can utilize this information to discern their business case and establish a roadmap for their ESG strategy, whether it involves energy efficiency, carbon emission reduction towards achieving net-zero goals, or ensuring compliance with government regulations.

What technical expertise is required to operate the Green Buildings Tool?

What data sources does the tool utilize?

The tool accesses publicly available data from local or national governments, climate databases, and benchmarks. It can also integrate data through APIs or be manually updated through periodic data extraction and upload processes.

Regarding electricity, gas, and heating information, the tool relies on historical records for pricing and a standard energy consumption per building category. These data points are regularly adjusted to reflect changes in average prices, consumption efficiencies, and seasonal variations.

For the suggested energy-efficiency measures, the data draws from our 15-year consulting experience as well as the technical specifications of devices or technologies certified by relevant authorities. This information includes average prices for purchase and installation in every market where we operate.

How does CFP handle cybersecurity and data privacy?

CFP maintains the highest standards in information security. The company is certified under the ISO 27001 standard, ensuring stringent measures for information security at both the network/infrastructure level and user level across the entire organization.

How does the tool differentiate itself from competitors?

While several companies provide ESG data insights for real estate portfolios, the GBT stands out for its personalized approach. We offer customized business cases for both your entire portfolio and individual buildings. Additionally, our real estate reporting tool allows you to update data in later stages, a feature not available on many other platforms. What sets us apart is our simplicity: with just 4 data inputs, the Tool provides actionable, accurate and scalable sustainability insights applicable worldwide.

How many buildings can I input into the Green Buildings Tool?

Can the Green Buildings Tool be used in conjunction with other accreditation schemes like BREEAM and WELL?

Yes, the Green Building Assessment Tool serves as a powerful guide for enhancing energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions at both portfolio and building levels. It offers valuable insights into areas where improvements can be made, which might align with credits for BREEAM and/or WELL certification.
