ESG reporting starts with data integration across multiple platforms, and data standards provide the consistency to exchange data and help you gain new capabilities across the entire supply chain. The energy phase of OSCRE's Environmental Data Standards Project for Real Estate is complete, and includes 5 use cases as well as implementation tools that can help you address compliance reporting, benchmarking and an API specification. A data standards development project focused on water will come in early 2024; a similar project on waste will follow. For more information on this project contact us

Leaders Collaborating: Industry leaders are sharing perspectives on their challenges and collaborating to develop solutions to one of the most critical challenges facing our industry today - better data to capture real estate’s impact on the environment. Real estate organizations need to move quickly to develop an effective approach to environmental data. That need for speed impacts how you collect, report and analyze data. You have an opportunity to accelerate your progress towards better strategies and practices for environmental data management and decision making in a platform-agnostic approach.

OSCRE Environmental Data Standards Project: Energy Phase is Complete

OSCRE has been collaborating with leading organizations since late 2022 to build a new energy data standard, which is now available with free and open access.  These organizations include investment firms, corporate owners and occupiers as well as the external business partners who work with them. This project addresses the challenges of disparate data across platforms that impact consistency, accuracy, transparency and interoperability.

The standard includes 5 use cases and tools to assist you in implementation, as well as guidance for benchmarking and compliance. The use cases include:

  1. Energy data set - a data model for energy
  2. Direct emissions policy
  3. Collect energy data from functional data owners
  4. Energy data reporting requierments of the supply chain
  5. Collect data from the supply chain
