In light of the escalating demand for sustainable buildings and tightening regulations, the imperative for investment in retrofitting and future proofing real estate has never been clearer. There is an imbalance of supply versus demand for sustainable commercial spaces, with demand significantly higher in the United States market. As reported by JLL, there is 75% more demand for sustainable commercial space than is available. 


JLL's latest report highlights three critical factors that owners and occupiers must consider in decision-making to create a resilient and sustainable built environment. With only a fraction of future demand for low-carbon workspace currently in the pipeline across major office markets, the need for sustainable buildings is paramount. This shift is reflected in tenants' increasing focus on environmental performance indicators alongside traditional green certifications, signaling a transformative period in the real estate industry's approach to sustainability. The door is now wide open for the entire ecosystem including commercial real estate, manufacturers, and construction companies to fill this void.


Ecomedes offers a space for brands to showcase their products and sustainability data on their own portals, providing a one-stop-shop for design inspiration, data cleansing, and performance evaluation. Users can easily search for products meeting specific sustainability criteria or by design inspiration, making the procurement process seamless.
