Facilitating Net Zero Goals
Growthpoint has significantly accelerated its target of achieving net zero emissions across their operationally controlled office assets and corporate activities. With a new target of 2025, the initial target of 2050 has been fast-tracked by 25 years.
This has been made possible with a strategic approach to identifying areas for improvement in energy efficiency, onsite solar solutions and offsite renewables.
Designing Innovative Solutions
WSP was engaged to provide an analysis of the energy performance of Growthpoint’s office portfolio, including energy audits of nine buildings. Our role involved identifying and quantifying cost and energy savings and assisting with the development and visualisation of pathways to meet goals.
- Energy efficiency equipment upgrades
- Use of onsite renewables
- Transition to 100% offsite renewable energy for residual energy needs
- Offsetting gas and corporate emissions
Growthpoint continues to build resilience into its portfolio by improving energy efficiency and adopting science-based goals. This focus means their portfolio of high-quality, resilient assets will remain future ready.
As well as leading the way in reducing their own environmental footprint, Growthpoint is supporting tenants in meeting their own emission-reduction goals.
