ESG

Our responsible approach to business

Since our founding in 2009, we have made significant strides incorporating Environmental, Social & Governance ('ESG') factors in to our strategy, risk management and governance processes.

In 2018 we have taken another important step forward, publishing a standalone ESG report for the first time. Going forward, this report will be published annually, enabling stakeholders to assess our progress against our key ESG priorities over time.

"Our ESG programme has rapidly evolved over the last few years and is now fully comprehensive, covering all areas from strategy development to data management and operations.

The programme remains dynamic and fluid – our ongoing operational performance and management feeds into our reporting and benchmarking, which in turn influences our strategy development.

We are open and transparent with our stakeholders about our approach to ESG risks and opportunities and how we are progressing against environmental, social and governance criteria and benchmarks.

Our philosophy

We are committed to improving our ESG reporting and disclosure and would like to extend our thanks to our colleagues, property managers and our occupiers for providing feedback which we incorporate into our strategy and programme.

Our reporting approach will follow guidelines published by EPRA and the TCFD and we aim to completely align with these industry standards as we further improve our reporting programme.

How we are moving forward

We believe that strong ESG performance is central to our long-term success.

In FY19, we will continue to develop our ESG investment strategies and responsible asset management to drive value and manage ESG-related risks.

We will drive the operational aspects forward with focus on our resource efficiency and cost reduction programme, stakeholder engagement, compliance and risk management.

To support our ongoing strategy, in FY18 we began our installation programme of automatic electricity meters, achieving 50% coverage of our retail portfolio, and are currently rolling out the same initiative for gas and water.

Looking ahead, we see this standalone report as a significant milestone in our commitment to enhancing our ESG programme, and it’s annual publication facilitates measurement of how successful we have been and highlights areas where we can continue to improve."
