BREEAM and Measurabl

In April 2018, BRE announced the launch of their integration of the BREEAM Standard with the Measurabl platform to improve the financial performance of commercial real estate. Measurabl is the world’s most widely adopted sustainability software for real estate.

The integration is intended to offer an easy way for facility managers and building owners to save time and improve the accuracy of sustainability reporting and third party certification.

The integration automatically syncs BREEAM’s GreenBookLive – a registry of BREEAM certifications – with Measurabl’s platform to improve the accuracy of sustainability reporting to protocols like GRESB and CDP, and to simplify the tracking and maintaining of sustainability certifications for building owners and operators. The integration is available at no cost to buildings worldwide registered with Measurabl and certified with BREEAM.

The BREEAM-Measurabl integration was timed for release just as many companies are compiling their annual investor disclosures on sustainability. Most real estate companies must issue multiple reports – both internal and public facing – in various formats, so capturing and mapping the data to different standards compounds the time investment and risk of inaccuracies. With more than 5 billion sq. ft of commercial real estate across 67 countries using Measurabl, vast time savings and accuracy improvements have been created.

Barry Giles, CEO of BRE America, said: “Integrating with Measurabl is a significant milestone in our tech-forward approach to building sustainability certification. Our joint clients can benefit from seamless data sharing, making it easier than ever to implement sustainable practices by keeping all the data in one place. We’re excited our clients will be able to focus on improving building performance rather than keeping track of data.”

Matt Ellis, Measurabl’s Founder and CEO, said:

BREEAM certification is one of the most prestigious hallmarks of a sustainable building, and has been widely adopted in Europe, but tracking and reporting certification status across large real estate portfolios is tedious and prone to manual error. Through this partnership, we have made it easier and more accurate for multinational portfolios to measure, manage, act upon, and promote the successes they’ve achieved through excellent ESG performance.”
