Cushman & Wakefield’s European Offices Awarded ISO 14001 Certification

Cushman & Wakefield’s European Offices Awarded ISO 14001 Certification
01 June 2023

All 28 of Cushman & Wakefield’s main corporate offices across 15 countries have completed ISO 14001 audits, demonstrating effective environmental management.

The ISO 14001 framework helps businesses and other organisations to reduce their environmental impact through the implementation of an effective environmental management system (EMS). Designed for any type of organisation, regardless of its activity or sector, it can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

Colin Wilson, Chief Executive, EMEA at Cushman & Wakefield said: “We recognise that Cushman & Wakefield has a leading role to play in shaping a sustainable future for the real estate industry and beyond. Our extended ISO-standard environmental management system is a vital tool that will help us to better understand and take action on the environmental impact our operations have on the planet.

“We are delighted to see positive tangible results being produced across our region. We have so far responded to more than 70 recommendations to reduce our emissions, including being more intentional with our choice in car fleet, lighting, and equipment, and executing large scale office space optimisation projects. This is delivering tangible results. In Warsaw alone, we are proud to have almost halved our energy consumption over the past year and we very much feel that this is just the beginning.”


Cushman & Wakefield's Net-Zero Pledges


In 2022, Cushman & Wakefield was one of the first companies to have its net-zero targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). They have pledged to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions across its corporate offices and operations by 50 per cent. by 2030 from a 2019 base year.

By 2050 Cushman & Wakefield hopes to achieve net zero emissions across its entire value chain, encompassing all direct and indirect business elements that contribute to GHG emissions (scopes 1, 2 and 3).
