Real Estate

XDC Real Estate Explorer

Capture the climate impact of buildings, quarters, and real estate portfolios in one simple value: degrees Celsius. Calculate 1.5°C-aligned decarbonisation pathways. Evaluate refurbishments and investments in advance. Tackle the transition. 

From complexity to clarity

See your building stock’s climate performance, where the greatest climate risks lie, and what decarbonisation pathways to 1.5°C-alignment would look like. It’s easier than you think! Data on area, building type, country, and emissions (Whole Buildings Approach) are converted into one single figure: X °C.

Science-based investment

Our innovative X-Degree Compatibility (XDC) Model marries economy and science: Based on the CRREM decarbonisation pathways, we measure the performance of each building against its 1.5°C-aligned benchmark (depending on country and building type) and then calculate: What if the whole world operated as this building does?

By integrating a climate model, we bring the best available (climate) science into our calculations, giving you everything you need in one number: reliability, transparency, international comparability – all based on science.

Know what works

Which refurbishment measure is the right choice? When is the best time for it? How can renovation plans be adjusted to maximise their effect? And, most importantly: Will the planned optimisations be sufficient to bring the buildin, the quarter or the portfolio on track for 1.5°C?

Use scenario analysis in XDC Real Estate Explorer to check the effectiveness of your plans, before investing in them.

Competitive Advantage °C

Impress your customers and investors with sound, tangible, and intuitive climate metrics. Use forward looking KPIs to not only show how carbon-intensive your real estate is now, but to demonstrate that your modernisations are 1.5°C-compatible. Make the transition possible!

Software or API – your choice!

Use our own browser-based application, XDC Real Estate Explorer, to analyse your buildings directly. Or integrate our climate metrics into your own systems through an API.
