Ramboll has a long-term relationship with Capco. Initially appointed to look at the utility contract procurement and invoice verification for their Covent Garden estate in central London, the services expanded over the years to incorporate the administrative management of all issues relating to gas, electricity and water across the market and surrounding office premises. These include establishing and terminating utility supply accounts, changes to metering, sustainability reporting and the introduction of a cloud-based data visualisation portal.
As more central government legislation has been introduced, the scope of works has expanded to cover all compliance issues. Ramboll provides a range of services to Capco including the production of energy performance certificates (EPC) and reporting the corporate reduction commitment for the entire company portfolio including their Earl’s Court site and corporate head offices.
Since 2011, we have been providing a range of sustainability reporting services for Capco. This has included a review of the company’s environmental sustainability reporting process, carrying out a gap analysis and data review on various global sustainability initiatives such as FTSE4Good. Data on various aspects of sustainability performance including GHG impact, waste management and social engagement has been audited to ensure it was accurate and robust and could be used for various voluntary and mandatory reporting disclosures such as the company’s annual account reports and global reports such as The Carbon Disclosure Project and Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark. Ramboll continues to provide these sustainability reporting services to Capco.
An ongoing working relationship has been established with Capco, where trust is uppermost in ensuring that they are positioned correctly in the market, relative to the wider sustainability agenda and legislative compliance frameworks.
