Sustainability

Environment

Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate understands the importance of environmental planning and balancing of social demands with environmental sustainability. We provide clients with extensive environmental services, ranging from archaeological site inspections to comprehensive ecological assessments for major projects. Our professional environmental advice is both time efficient and cost effective.

Green buildings

Green buildings have far-reaching environmental, health, productivity and financial benefits. In response to a rapidly growing need for environmental sustainability and energy conservation, Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate, in collaboration with Green Star SA Accredited Professionals, has formulated a comprehensive yet simple “green strategy”. It provides practical, applicable initiatives, with each action being evaluated in terms of expertise required, costs involved and benefits to the environment, the building owner and its occupants. We are able to contribute to sustainable economic objectives and environmental responsibility by assisting our clients who wish to incorporate “green clauses” into their leases.

Corporate governance

We maintain high standards of corporate governance and comply with legislative requirements in all the countries in which we operate. Our financial accounting complies with IFRS. As we strengthen our international presence, we continue to review our compliance and risk management skills, systems and processes to further enhance these capabilities.

Health and safety

We provide a healthy, safe working environment for all our staff and clients. This means adhering to the applicable regulations, and all other legislative requirements. Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate also manages this risk for our clients, to ensure compliance is adhered to and all risks are mitigated.

Transformation and BBBEEE

We are a proud Level 2 BBBEE contributor.

As a responsible corporate citizen we continually strive to contribute to transformation in South Africa and improve our BBBEE compliance in all seven pillars. We support various Corporate Social Investment and Enterprise Development initiatives, and always seek innovative solutions with high impact in these areas. Our structured procurement division secures services from BBBEE suppliers to meet minimum targets for the procurements of the property sector’s scorecard.

Innovation

Innovation drives sustainability.

Strategic innovation is the creation of growth strategies, new product categories, services or business models that change the game. At Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate, we embrace new technology and we’re always looking for fresh and innovative ways to serve our clients.
