O

ver 40% of the world’s energy is consumed by commercial and industrial buildings. At a time when the need for climate action

and sustainability reform is greater than ever before, global real estate services and investment firm CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions (GWS) division 216

is working to leverage new technology, alongside the combined experience of over 80,000 employees, to ensure the world’s leading companies are also sustainability leaders in the private sector. “We work across a broad, diverse background of clients with different needs and specialisations around their energy and sustainability appetites. Our goal is to create value for them in that space,” says Joe Gomez, Head of Energy & Sustainability, EMEA. We sat down with Gomez to find out how CBRE is delivering sustainability at a profit to its impressive roster of tier one clients. Gomez and the GWS division work across four different major verticals. “We work with major players in the industrial oil and gas business, in banking and insurance, technology, and life sciences and pharmaceuticals,” explains Gomez.
