Here at CSR Sustain, our “Improvement Roadmap Report” helps clients outline the steps and strategies to enhance the asset performance of their building or tenancy based on an EPC rating.
Alongside MEES compliance, by implementing upgrades to improve the EPC rating of a commercial property, our Asset Improvement Roadmap can offer numerous benefits for both building owners and their occupants, ensuring compliance with UK regulations and government mandated MEES.
Energy-efficient upgrades, such as improved insulation, energy-efficient lighting, and HVAC systems, can significantly reduce energy consumption, leading to lower utility bills and operational costs for the building owner and tenants.
A higher EPC rating indicates a more energy-efficient building, making it more attractive to potential buyers, investors, and tenants. This can increase the market value and rental potential of the commercial property.
Energy-efficient upgrades often lead to improved indoor environmental quality, better temperature regulation, and reduced drafts, creating a more comfortable and productive environment for occupants.
Across the UK, commercial properties are required to meet certain energy efficiency standards and regulations. Improving the EPC rating ensures compliance with these mandates and reduces the risk of potential penalties or restrictions.
As energy costs rise and environmental concerns grow, energy-efficient buildings are likely to be more resilient and better positioned to adapt to changing regulations and market demands.
Energy-efficient upgrades help to lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the overall environmental footprint of the building, contributing to broader sustainability and climate change mitigation efforts.
Tenants often value environmentally responsible buildings. Taking steps to further improve the EPC rating can attract environmentally conscious businesses and lead to higher tenant retention rates.
Energy-efficient upgrades represent a long-term investment in the property. While there may be an upfront cost, the ROI through energy savings and other benefits can make these upgrades financially rewarding over time.Improved Asset Value

The process starts with our initial assessment of the building’s energy performance, indoor environment quality, waste management, and other sustainability metrics. We establish the current EPC rating and forms the basis for the Asset Improvement Roadmap.
With these findings, we collaborate with the client to create a comprehensive Asset Improvement Roadmap, aiming to elevate the building’s EPC ratings and improve its asset performance through recommended measures and strategies.
We provide a report detailing strategies and solutions to implement to improve EPC ratings i.e. entail retrofitting or improved maintenance practices. Continuous monitoring ensures success, and periodic assessments confirm progress and compliance to legislation.
