Considering ESG factors is front and centre in all our projects, ingrained at every step. And not because the market expects it, but because accounting for ESG strengthens our decision-making and drives better outcomes – for our projects, people and the planet. We see this as an opportunity to actively drive positive change through our work and help accelerate the global transition to net zero, while maximising the investment credentials of every building.
We’re also conscious this is a work in progress. We’re working hard to explore new ideas, work closely with the right people, and actively challenge ourselves to ensure our impact is a positive one.
“Accounting for ESG factors is never a tick-box exercise; it’s something that’s integrated at every step of a project for completeness. We’re not there yet – we’re still learning and questioning and seeking to filter new ideas through the whole team, encouraging our partners to take their own active steps too.”
We set exemplary ESG standards, targeting optimum ratings for BREEAM, EPC, WELL, Fitwel, ActiveScore and AirScore. We also actively encourage our partners to invest sustainably.
We seek to implement a social agenda for each project, and consider ESG credentials when appointing consultants and partners. We support and implement anti-bribery, anti-money laundering and Modern Slavery Act policies.
We encourage property managers to procure services against established ESG targets.
We appraise the value created at an asset level by implementing a strong ESG agenda.
