Energy 表演 Certificates (EPCs) are one measure of the modelled energy efficiency of properties. British Land has a strong track record of improving actual operational efficiency and has set challenging targets to drive further progress.

In 2020, 我们推出了雄心勃勃的可持续发展战略, a central part of which is to build on the significant progress we’ve made in the previous decade and transition our portfolio to be net zero carbon by 2030. Reducing emissions from operational energy to be as low as possible is an important part of that plan. We have already reduced landlord energy intensity by 55% across our portfolio since 2009 and we aim to reduce whole building energy intensity by 25% by 2030, 与2019年.*

Our well-established efficiency programme not only advances progress towards our net zero carbon goal, 但也证明了我们的投资组合的未来, better positioning it for both the growing demand for more sustainable space and increasingly progressive climate regulations.

The 最低能源效益标准 (MEES) have made it illegal to lease or renew leases for properties with EPC ratings below E since 2018 with few exceptions. 2023年4月, 要求扩大到包括所有商业租赁物业, 不仅仅是新的租约和续签. 此外,还提出了进一步的改革,以在2030年之前分阶段加强MEES, with requirements projected to rise to EPC C or above from 2027 and to EPC B or above from 2030.

我们支持加强MEES的要求和, 与行业一起, 是否对建议的变更提供了详细的反馈. We would welcome swift confirmation on the new regulations, so that we can accelerate action. 我们在提升能源性能方面拥有丰富的专业知识和经验, 随着市场的发展,我们的定位是什么.

在我们管理的投资组合中, the majority of our assets have a net zero plan and 45% of our portfolio is now rated EPC A or B. 这一比例高于2022年3月的36%, 而我们50%的办事处被EPC评为A或B级, 截至2022年3月31日,这一比例为46%.

我们在23财年实现了9%的a或B评级提升, 两个主要办事处和超过100个零售单位的评级提升至A或B. The drivers for this improvement were the implementation of net zero initiatives and the update to the modelling of EPC ratings to reflect the decarbonisation of the grid.

下面, we provide more detail on EPCs across our portfolio and outline our plans to upgrade energy performance where appropriate.

To meet our 2030 objectives and comply with expected MEES legislation requiring our whole portfolio to be a minimum EPC B by 2030, we appointed external consultants to conduct net zero audits identifying opportunities to improve energy efficiency and raise the EPC rating. 这些审计工作涵盖了我们的29项主要资产,现已完成.

We expect the total cost for retrofitting the standing portfolio to be in the region of £100m. 这项投资将侧重于节能干预措施, 在当前的环境下,哪些投资通常有吸引力的回报, 随着能源价格的上涨, 对居住者来说是一项有吸引力的投资. Many of these interventions and associated costs would be part of our ‘business as usual’ processes, 通过有计划的工厂更换. 我们已经与整个投资组合的占领者进行了富有成效的对话. 整体, we expect that two thirds of the cost will be funded through the service charge or by customers directly.

虽然我们在epc方面取得了良好进展, 我们主要致力于提高能源效率和降低碳强度. This is how we will deliver on our 2030 targets to improve whole building energy efficiency by 25% and reduce operational carbon intensity by 75%, 都是基于2019年的基线.

To fund any outstanding costs relating to these interventions, we have established our 转换工具, comprising ringfenced funds financed by our internal levy of £60 per tonne of embodied carbon in developments, 此外还有500万英镑的内部浮动资金.

Interventions identified through net zero carbon audits of individual buildings include retrofitting air or water source heating and cooling pumps, 安装最新的LED照明和引入CO2 控制. 这些干预措施将加速实现净零排放的进程, 同时, 推动EPC改进. 我们现在正与客户一起计划这些干预措施, 制作详细的设计,并将其纳入商业计划, 在法规生效前将资产转移出风险.



Interventions will be scheduled to coincide with lease events and planned plant replacement cycles where possible, to minimise disruption to occupiers and avoid unnecessary costs and embodied emissions resulting from replacing equipment before its end of life.



  • 所有朝着EPC A方向的新发展,如我们的 可持续性短暂.

  • Revising lease clauses to reflect the new MEES trajectory to ensure that customer fitouts do not negatively impact EPC ratings.

  • Resurveying older EPCs, where efficiency improvements have been implemented, to move out of risk now.

  • 应用ing for exemptions where it is not commercially or physically viable to improve EPCs to MEES requirements.

继续以提高实际能源效率为重点, 这并不总是反映在EPC模型中. 除了, 我们将继续关注终身碳排放, 认识到更换主要工厂并不总是对环境有利, as the embodied carbon footprint can be greater than the operational efficiency savings. 我们致力于到2030年实现净零碳组合.
