BCO ESG Workshop: Design for Performance


On Wednesday, 14th March BCO held an Environmental, Social and Governance Workshop featuring the Design for Performance initiative. The project is an industry initiative led by Verco and including BSRIA, Arup and the Usable Buildings Trust, and supported by the BBP, which aims to change the way we design new office developments in the UK. The Design for Performance initiative looks abroad to the hugely successful Australian NABERS Commitment Agreement and explores the applicability and opportunity of developing and testing such a framework in the UK.

Debbie Hobbs, Legal & General, Robert Cohen, Verco and Sarah Ratcliffe, BBP, presented a summary and update on the initiative at the BCO Workshop, providing insight on the lessons learnt from the pilot projects.
