CBRE Pacific have built on global standards to deliver a regionally tailored policy for how CBRE manages our own premises. The policy details the minimum standards that CBRE tenancies should adhere to. We have set goals, actions and targets against areas such as energy, waste, water, office supplies and suppliers, and indoor air quality. The aim is for all tenancies entering a new lease agreement or renewal of lease to meet these targets by 2015. 


CBRE’s flagship Tokyo and Singapore offices were planned to both seek green certification and adopt the Workplace360 strategy concept. The Tokyo office is pursuing LEED for Commercial Interiors certification as there is no equivalent scheme under Japan’s CASBEE green building rating system.

In Singapore, however, CBRE is pursuing the national Building Construction Authority’s Green Mark for Office Interiors rating system. With three existing LEED-certified buildings in the Asia market, choosing an Asian green building system resonates well with the local market. As occupier clients in Singapore are increasingly choosing to use Green Mark, our firsthand experience helps our Proj- ect Management teams better facilitate successful program outcomes for our clients. Many aspects of Green Mark for Office Interiors are fundamentally different from LEED for Commercial Interiors, particularly the focus on ongoing office operations after the fit-out is complete, commitment to performance improvement targets for aspects such as energy and water, and the need to recertify the project after three years. Undertak- ing this program allows CBRE’s Singapore office to become a useful test bed for corporate sustainability initiatives. Both the Tokyo and Singapore projects were completed in 2014 and are awaiting final award of their certification.
