3 sustainable real estate trends in 2024 – and how to meet them with hello energy 

As we continue into 2024, sustainable real estate is poised for big, transformative trends that will  continue to shape the industry’s landscape. According to PwC, occupiers and investors alike are highly prioritising buildings that align with the latest working practices and long-term sustainability goals. Here’s a glimpse of the three key green real estate trends that will define the year ahead:


1) Green certifications: tomorrow’s buildings today

Green building standards and certifications are taking centre stage, with developers embracing environmentally friendly criteria like BREEAM, GRESB and WELL. These certifications not only enhance property value but also contribute to a reduced environmental footprint, promoting resource efficiency and improving energy performance. With hello energy, you score unique credits on these and other labels with our comprehensive engagement package on areas like tenant engagement and community, smart mobility, health and well-being and much more.


2) ESG reporting: navigating the transparency wave

ESG reporting has become the cornerstone of the real estate sector, with companies facing increasing pressure to disclose comprehensive metrics—ranging from energy consumption to social impact. Transparency is the key to attracting investors aligned with ESG principles. hello energy helps by simplifying the complex process of data collection. The platform empowers real estate owners to streamline key data such as energy usage, water consumption and other utilities, facilitating compliance with regulatory frameworks like the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).


3) Technology: shaping the future of operations

Technology is rapidly boosting the efficiency and sustainability of real estate operations. From smart building technologies to energy management systems and data analytics, the integration of tech allows property owners to monitor and optimise energy consumption, reduce waste and enhance operational efficiency. With a keen eye on these tech trends, hello energy is continuously adding unique features to its innovative software to provide enhanced functionalities for all of our users.
