MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT BUILDINGS

In France in 2014, BNP Paribas Real Estate developed CARE (Comfort and Responsible Energy building), an energy-performance guarantee for office buildings which exceeds French regulations by 40%. In the first three years, any energy consumed below the guaranteed level is refunded by the developer.

After the CSR assessment on 70% of its assets at market value, BNP Paribas Real Estate Investment Management France committed, amongst other things, to reduce the energy age of its assets, 2/3 of which must perform better than the standards of 2000 by 2020.

In Germany, BNP Paribas Real Estate offers investment customers an analysis of their property assets against CSR criteria, so as to reduce the energy footprint of their portfolios.
