What means Sustainable real estate?

Interest in sustainable real estate is increasing due to growing concerns about climate change and rising energy costs. Sustainability is considered from the design phase of new business premises. This investment in sustainability is recouped through lower energy costs and increased demand during the sales or rental period.

The Dutch government has introduced energy labels to help property owners improve their energy performance. Commercial properties with a green energy label are more desirable in the market. From January 1, 2018, an energy label is required when constructing, selling, or renting commercial premises.
