GHG Emissions As a global real estate services provider, Cushman & Wakefield has an opportunity to make a significant impact on reducing GHG emissions associated with commercial real estate services, both in our own operations and through services provided to our clients. Cushman & Wakefield has committed to setting science-based GHG emissions reduction targets focused on reducing emissions from our own operations as well as from facilities we manage by partnering with clients. In 2020, Cushman & Wakefield’s operations emitted approximately 18,827,178 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO 2 e) scope 1, scope 2 (market-based), and scope 3 GHG emissions. This represents an absolute 2.5% decrease in total emissions compared to 2019. With the addition of all relevant scope 3 categories, approximately 98% of Cushman & Wakefield’s total 2020 GHG emissions is from the use of sold products, which represents the emissions associated with tenant occupancy of facilities managed by Cushman & Wakefield. Scope 1 and 2 emissions combined represent only 0.2% of Cushman & Wakefield’s total GHG emissions.
