Avison Young

Avison Young creates economic, social and environmental value as a global real estate advisor, powered by people. As a specialist property adviser in the UK and a turnover of £195m, we are one of the top five multidisciplinary commercial consultancies in the UK, providing a full range of property related services to clients across all sectors.

Sustainability is firmly ingrained in business practice, and a guiding principle in the real estate industry. It informs everything we do. The business case for sustainability is clear, and powerful: Not only does it create value, but also improves the performance of buildings and people. But we can’t stand still. Keeping sustainability at the heart of your business requires commitment. So does keeping up with evolving environmental and social trends. The need to do better is a constant challenge for businesses – one which we help our clients to meet.

Avison Young’s ESG & Wellness strategy is grounded in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world’s blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs provide a universal framework for setting meaningful targets and actions, engaging with stakeholders and communicating performance. Along with them, we align with widely recognized frameworks and approaches that are of particular importance to our business and our clients. We adopted the SDG alignment protocol in 2020 and have identified eight goals where we believe we can make our greatest contribution – both as a business and as an advisor to clients. It’s a core belief of ours that the widespread implementation of clear and effective sustainability strategies can make a tangible difference in the fight against climate change.
