A SUSTAINABILITY assurance line has been launched by HW Fisher.
The Top 30 firm will provide audit and advice services for commercial property owners, helping them identify energy savings and sustainable design.
The audit will be made up of the client's physical infrastructure and its processes -analysing the data to produce a detailed ‘Solutions Audit'. This will propose a series of energy saving solutions and investigate the potential for more efficient onsite energy generation.
The costing and return on investment will be gauged, and capital allowances provided by the government will also be considered.
Jae Mather, director of sustainability at HW Fisher, said that commercial property owners and directors often view sustainability as "an expensive luxury", so its advisers are well placed to help understand and present a financial case.
"For us, greater sustainability means not just better energy efficiency, but also better management of the risk posed by future energy price rises. Our aim is to help commercial property owners face down this risk and use the power of sustainability to boost their bottom line."
