Environmental benchmarking service launched

29 July 2010

Schal Sustainability - part of Carillion plc - has launched a new environmental benchmarking service.

Schal Sustainability has been developed to assist businesses and building managers in ensuring their existing buildings' internal and external operations are in line with current environmental best practice and legislation. It has for more than a decade provided environmental assessment services for buildings during construction, ensuring that designs are environmentally-efficient and user-friendly. Responding to an increasing industry demand, Schal is now sharing its accrued expertise with building managers, facilities managers and companies with medium / large property portfolios. It is working alongside them as BREEAM in-Use auditors whilst concurrently helping to reduce operational costs, as well as delivering enhanced value and marketability of property assets and a transparent platform for negotiating building improvements with landlords and owners.
The BREEAM In-Use model forms the framework for Schal’s new service but in addition Schal assesses an organisation or a building’s approach to the environment and provides verification, certification and bespoke advice for continual improvement.

Richard Johnson, Schal Sustainability Group Manager explains: “Where once CSR policy benefits and 'green kudos' would have been the major business benefits derived from environmental benchmarking. These days it is transformed from a 'desirable' into an 'essential' - an absolute necessity for businesses if they are to ensure that their operations and assets comply with current legislation.”
