Build to consume less
The construction and operation of a building contributes up to 40% of the world’s energy consumption – a significant figure in the face of increasing energy costs and scarcity for fossil fuels.
Governments and authorities have been addressing this issue for the last years and have developed national and international “Green Building” standards and energy efficiency standards that are applicable to buildings. Municipalities, planners, builders, operators and facility management companies all need to ensure compliance to these standards. TÜV SÜD’s global teams of building safety and quality experts are well versed in the local and international standard requirements and will support you in the adoption of these via feasibility studies and expert advisory. TÜV SÜD’s energy efficiency services for buildings complement a holistic Green Building service portfolio and real estate services. Additionally, TÜV SÜD also provides a complete portfolio for management system certification to help you benchmark your operations with international standards.
It’s not just about compliance. It’s about good business. Independent expert information pinpointing ways to drive down costs and thereby increase your bottom line is crucial to your business.
