Responsible Property Investment

We believe we can contribute to society by managing the impact that our operations, products and services have on the environment and society. Sustainability is therefore embedded in the way we work.
Responsible Property Investment Policy

Responsible Property Investment Policy

Our greatest positive impact on sustainability will come from the way our business relates to our funds’ assets. This falls into three key activities:

  • Investment, where we consider the sustainability risks of buildings for purchase.
  • Management, where we endeavour to improve the performance of existing buildings.
  • Development, where the design and construction of new buildings and redevelopments meet our target to achieve a minimum BREEAM Sustainability rating of Very Good.

In all three cases, our focus areas will be energy efficiency, water management and waste reduction. We will also work with external parties and bodies to identify our sustainability responsibilities, ensuring we comply with our policy and legislation, and that we work to best practice guidance. We will make the resulting information available to the industry as a whole, to promote the wider sustainability agenda.

We also acknowledge that good housekeeping is fundamental to our approach. We will strive to continually improve the environmental performance of our own operations, with regards to energy use, water and waste management, and transportation.

Since 2022 our Responsible Property Investment (RPI) Policy has been incorporated within our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policy and this is endorsed by our Board. We actively communicate the policy to our employees and other interested parties, and review it each year.
