Core Provisions

Managing agents have a critical role to play in improving the sustainability performance of the buildings they manage. They are an intrinsic part of the day-to-day management of commercial property and often at the ‘coal face’ of addressing sustainability in the built environment.

To address this, in September 2016, members of the Managing Agents Partnership launched Integrating Sustainability into Property Management: Core Provisions, a framework that sets out the core activities which should be undertaken by any managing agent as part of their standard property management offering to clients. 

The Core Provisions been designed to ensure applicability across the entire commercial property sector and all members of the Managing Agents Partnership have committed to incorporate these provisions within their property management offer to clients. In addition, it provides detailed guidance and checklists for each of these activities on why they should be of interest to agents and how they can practically approach their implementation.

The Core Provisions sets out the 8 key activities which should be undertaken by managing agents as part of their standard property management offering to clients, with practical guidance for each activity.

  1. Managing Compliance
  2. Utilities
  3. Waste
  4. Procurement
  5. Skills & Competence
  6. Occupier Engagement
  7. Maintenance, Alterations & Replacement of Equipment
  8. Handover
