Develop Common Approaches

All of our Projects, Toolkits and Industry Insights are developed in collaboration with our members, sector stakeholders and industry experts. These BBP guidance tools provide extensive, in-depth practical information to support those involved at each stage of the property life cycle, from property owners, managers and investors to transactional agents and occupiers.

These tools focus on the development of common approaches and industry standardisation by providing freely accessible innovative and best-practice guidance that embeds sustainability principles into the commercial building sector. 


BBP Projects seek to embed sustainability practices into the commercial property sector, deliver improved building performance and cultivate market transformation. These long term and ongoing initiatives are developed in response to key challenges highlighted by our members and aim to provide practical solutions or new approaches to these sustainability issues that can be applied across the sector. We work closely with BBP members, industry bodies, experts and stakeholders, in the UK and globally, in a collaborative effort to develop pioneering approaches to overcome key sustainability challenges in the UK real estate sector. BBP Projects provide a platform for engagement and tools that target, influence and energize key stakeholders that drive the market.

These projects range from creating a new forum for Managing Agents to collaborate in this area - the Managing Agents Partnership - to developing and managing on of the most up to date real estate environmental benchmarks in the UK, REEB. Find out more about our Projects here


BBP Toolkits are developed collaboratively with BBP members and industry experts to provide in-depth, step-by-step guidance to support the adoption and incorporation of sustainability principles into the property sector. These reference guides outline practical advice to support stakeholders from each stage of the property life cycle from property owners, managers and investors to transactional agents and occupiers. Each toolkit brings together essential resources and guidance from across the industry into one pace, identifying key intervention points to stimulate change and drive integration of sustainability skills into core professional competencies beyond specialist sustainability teams. 

Toolkits are available as online tools and in PDF format and are freely available to everyone to enable the BBP to disseminate sustainability expertise and support the upskilling of the industry and integration of sustainability into core competencies and operations. Read our Toolkits here
