Investing in tomorrow's world: Real estate sustainability report

Our sustainability approach and review of our 2019-2020 achievements

We integrate ESG throughout our real estate investment management process to help preserve and create value for our clients in tomorrow’s world. In this annual report, we explain our approach for managing the financial risks and opportunities associated with climate change and being a responsible property investor, whilst also highlighting our key awards and achievements over the past year.

2019-2020 awards and achievements

Managing the financial risks and opportunities associated with climate change and being a responsible investor

We recognize that the physical impacts of climate change will affect real estate values and that it is critical to develop an understanding of how, where and when these physical impacts will become financially material to an individual investment’s financial performance. In the report, we explain the following risks and our process for identifying, evaluating and protecting our real estate portfolio from them:

We are also conscious that the transition to the low carbon economy presents both financial opportunities and risks, which are explained in the report. Effectively managing building efficiency and carbon intensity throughout this transition is a key factor in creating and protecting value in the assets we manage. Whilst our sustainability strategy encompasses a broad range of ESG issues, we believe the physical impacts of climate change and the transition to the low carbon economy will have the most significant impact on real estate asset values and are therefore the most material for our clients.

In 2019, we signed a ground-breaking commitment to tackle the growing risks of climate change through the delivery of net zero carbon real estate portfolios by 2050.

 

Investing in innovation to achieve better buildings

To achieve our ambitious sustainability goals, we must invest in the latest technology and be innovative in our approach. This is a core part of how we do business, and we are particularly proud of our role in supporting and promoting the innovations that champion health and wellbeing in buildings and use smart building technology to achieve energy efficiency.

Case study: JCB Unit, Stoke-on-Trent, U.K.
