Dominating property magazines and internet news releases, the “how green is your commercial office?” debate has gripped the UK and with new government regulations overseeing the enforcement of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) for all commercial properties subject to sale or letting by 1st October 2008, energy saving has rocketed to the top of the discussion list for the commercial property industry. This year’s edition of the Total Office Cost Survey, 2008, dedicated a substantial proportion of their report to the subject of “Green Offices” including new definitions for what the term actually meant but the following quotation, taken from page 8 of the survey, probably best puts into perspective the current impact of environmental issues upon the commercial property industry:
“Through the energy needed for heating, lighting and servicing buildings, corporate and residential property is responsible for approximately 40% of global gas emissions (such as carbon dioxide) and is one of the most significant contributors to climate change.” Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)
We are increasingly surrounded by environmental awareness campaigns. The government urges us daily to take individual responsibility for our own carbon footprint. We can no longer carelessly throw something away, get in the car or book our holidays abroad without feeling a pang of guilt for our own little crimes against the environment. So it must be rather reassuring for occupants at serviced office property Riverside Court in Chepstow to know that by residing at one of the market’s most environmentally friendly properties they have at least one less eco-sin to worry about!
