SOURCE: CBRE Group, Inc.DESCRIPTION:
In recent months, CBRE has conducted a thorough analysis of sustainable real estate in 10 key cities in France spanning Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lille, Nantes, Strasbourg, Marseille, Montpellier, Nice.The map shows the prominence of green real estate for each city in terms of the size (in sq m) of office premises that benefit from either an energy label (BBC, Effinergie, HPE), a renovation/construction High Environmental Quality (HQE) certification or an HQE currently in use certification. The key trends as follows: Construction / Renovation Certifications
- Almost half of the HQE certified buildings in Paris also have an energy label
- In contrast, in all other cities - during the construction or renovation of a building - owners prefer to obtain an energy label rather than an HQE certification. One likely reason is that energy labels are often less labour intensive to acquire and are a cheaper approach.
- Impressive increase of its use in the last 3 years, particularly in Paris – over 1 400 000 sq m is certified
- However, in other cities such as Nice, Marseille, Strasbourg and Nantes, it remains non existent
