Data deficiency and different standards.

Recently, Shibang Wei Shishi released a special report of “Carbon Footprint and Desert Path of Chinese Commercial Real Estate”.According to the report analysis, the tracking and reports of carbon footprints have become the key steps for enterprises to achieve dual carbon targets, but currently there are still pain points for data incomplete and different institutions.Renewal energy replacement, office space planning and other measures, decarburization becomes “green”.

The report believes that with the increasingly severe global climate change situation, the commercial real estate industry, as one of the main source of carbon emissions, has become increasingly prominent.However, the lack of data related to emission and decarburization has become a key pain point for the green transformation of China’s commercial real estate industry.Sun Zutian, the person in charge of ESG researcher of the ESG in the Central State District of Shibang, said that tenants, owners and investors need to improve the data to evaluate the current status of carbon emissions, the functional effects, financial costs and income of measures, so as to make reasonable decisions.Therefore, the tracking and reporting of carbon footprints have become the first step in the enterprise to achieve dual carbon targets.

What are the carbon footprints of the enterprise?According to the report, the entire life cycle of this industry can cover four stages, namely: the production stage, construction stage, operation stage, and demolition phase of the building materials. Among them, the demolition process is the same as the construction process, which is generally included in the construction stage for calculation.”Although there are differences in factors such as industry attributes and corporate scale, the main composition of carbon footprints is representative and applicable to most office users.” For example, Sun Zutian, the carbon footprint of a well -known enterprise in Beijing in the decoration stage, mainly from the decoration stage.The carbon emissions produced by building materials such as keels and rock wools in the production stage, while carbon footprints during the operation stage are mainly derived from outsourcing electricity and outsourcing heat.

How should we formulate a decarbon path plan for the company’s carbon footprint composition and sustainable development goals?The report proposes the five major tenants’ carbon pathway, including improving energy efficiency, renewable energy replacement, office space planning, supply chain decarburization, and carbon deduction.Among them, improving energy use efficiency is considered the fastest and obvious decarburization measures.Tasters can evaluate and determine assets and facilities that need to be updated, upgraded or transformed through system’s energy audit.At the same time, the active use of renewable energy replacing traditional energy is a key step in the energy link.

In addition, some office companies in Beijing have optimized office space strategies such as increasing space usage, supporting remote office and conferences, using automation and big data technology, pursuit of sustainable certification and green leasing for decarbon.”For example, long -range office and conference can allow employees to reduce running and business trips, thereby reducing carbon emissions generated by the use of transportation.” Sun Zutian said.

Earlier, the “Beijing Municipality Promoting Environmental Social Governance (ESG) system high -quality development implementation plan (draft for comments)” publicly solicited opinions on the society.Beijing plans to promote the disclosure of ESG information in Beijing listed companies in accordance with the requirements of the exchange. In 2027, the disclosure rate strives to reach about 70%, helping the capital’s green low -carbon transformation.
