Words from our Supporting Sustaining Industry Partner


CBRE is proud to support the Journal of Sustainable Real Estate in their mission to provide a platform for the publication of innovative research papers aimed at understanding and advancing the introduction and adoption of sustainable real estate practices.


We know that the built environment has a profound effect on the environment. We are also certain that with better knowledge comes better action. The work done by academic researchers gives confidence to the many stakeholders, especially investors and occupants, that the actions they are taking truly matter.
