· The Pan-European Responsible Real Estate Consultancy deploys its strategic ambitions on the French market
· Etienne Cadestin, founder of the group, takes over the management of the French subsidiary
As the real estate industry’s players are reinventing themselves and strengthening their commitments to sustainable development and low carbon policy, Longevity Partners, the international and multidisciplinary Consultancy, is redoubling its ambition for the French market. Currently booming, the company has doubled its workforce and tripled its global turnover amounting to € 3.4 million in 2019.
In this new post-covid context and given the new measures to be taken with regard to the ELAN law (reforming housing, planning and digital technology in France) as well as the necessity of a compliant and sustainable real estate sector, Etienne Cadestin, CEO and Founder of Longevity Partners announced that he would take over the management of its France & Belux subsidiary.
Since 2015, Longevity Partners supports investors, promoters, builders and public institutions, providing them with solutions in terms of energy innovation, climate risk mitigation, social responsibility and sustainability. Teams of experts based in London, Paris and Amsterdam who are pioneers in their field currently manage the environmental certification of real estate portfolios valued at approximately $90 billion, in 33 countries and for 65 renowned clients (including Klépierre, Redevco, and Invesco).
Drawing on a strong international expertise, Longevity Partners intends to use its savoir-faire and influence in Europe to develop key activities such as solar or electric vehicles’ services or energy efficiency.
Launched two years ago and based in Paris, the French subsidiary is also experiencing rapid growth and has integrated three new members into its French team since the start of the crisis. Recently, the structure delivered a pan-European energetic compliance for a large CAC 40 group and it currently ensures the sustainable design of more than 400,000 square meters of responsible logistics buildings under construction.
To meet the Government’s strict demands, Longevity Partners provides solutions to the various players in the industry in the compliance upgrade to the ELAN law, dedicated to commercial real estate operations.
“The unprecedented health crisis we are going through demonstrates that real estate players need to anticipate the many risks linked to climate change and make their Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility prevail in a current dynamic and sustainability-oriented French market. I am very enthusiastic about the development of our activities in France, my teams and I want to take the opportunity to thank all of our customers and partners as we all work today with a common goal: to make the real estate industry more responsible.” Says Etienne Cadestin, Longevity Partners’ CEO and Founder.
