Environmental, social and governance
Built into our business
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) has long been fundamental to everything we do.
In fact, it’s our business in a nutshell. By bringing underestimated spaces back to life, we help shape better cities – transforming buildings into places where people can work productively and live healthy, happy lives.
What does ESG mean to us
It means future-proofing our assets, managing risk, and capitalising on the opportunities of a low carbon world.
By renovating and retrofitting buildings in a sustainable way, we can be at the forefront of responsible development, while still creating value for our investors.
All of this takes commitment. And action. To help us on our journey, we’ve outlined an ESG roadmap to turn bold aspirations into tangible impact for our tenants, communities, and the environment.

Our environmental, social and governance roadmap
Integrating our ESG approach across our portfolio is a dynamic, evolving process. As well as helping us understand, measure and share our performance, the roadmap allows us to respond to shifting shareholder and stakeholder expectations.
The first step was all about understanding what actually matters most to the people we work with. This done, we’re now
Identifying key risks and opportunities
Defining metrics to guide ESG assessment
Measuring and tracking ESG performance
Setting governance and reporting structures
Formalising plans to ensure our aspirations are achieved
Part of something bigger
The pursuit of a net-zero carbon society is no longer an abstract dream.
There are now worldwide plans to decarbonise the economy and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
We want to be part of this movement. By building ESG fundamentals into our strategy, we’ll continue to contribute while building a resilient model that’s better placed to generate new investment opportunities.
