We do not yet know how the demands will affect every company. Nor do we know who will be subject to them and when. What we do know is that some already hold certifications, such as Miljøfyrtårn, or have BREEAM In Use certified portfolios. And based on that, already have had some experience with sustainability reporting.

Because restructuring or adaption to new ways often is time-consuming, it will benefit those without said experience to start preparing. One thing with one should be familiarized, is energy rating. Energy labeling is said to be a key parameter in taxonomy. Also, the earlier you start measuring, the better rigged you are to meet the new demands.

Get ahead

It takes time to store data that forms a good basis for seeing a development trend or a comparison with other companies. If you start the work of retrieving sustainability data today (without having historical data in place), you are only ready to see connections in two years.

Competitive advantage

Eventually, a good environmental footprint is considered a hygiene factor. Something everyone just has to have in place.

The tenant places greater demands on the building owner. Who, in turn, delivers stronger competitive force by delivering sustainable buildings early. That way, building owners will be more attractive in the market.

The investor community also sees great demand and zeal for green, sustainable and future-oriented projects.
