Responsible Property Investment approach
Through its investment and property managers, the Company integrates ESG factors into its business practice across a number of core mechanisms:
An ESG framework provides the structure around which various property teams operate, reinforcing the concept that every individual engaged on the fund has a contribution to make towards the successful integration of ESG factors. An appraisal tool supports integration by capturing a range of key ESG related metrics to produce an assessment of risk and opportunity that is reflected in individual asset business plans. ESG guidance and training is regularly provided whilst the dedicated in-house team of two full-time specialists are supported by external specialist resources as required. Control is exercised through distinct ESG gateways that feed into acquisition, capital expenditure and operational activities.
