Delivering better returns is a key principle and we have always endeavoured to ‘do the right thing’ in our investments and developments. This includes finding optimal ways of delivering and managing our projects, refurbishing and repurposing existing buildings where possible, using offsite modular construction for new developments and integrating energy saving systems and property technology applications into our property management operations. Before it had its present name, we have been promoting the circular economy through our regeneration efforts and we will continue to do so.

We continue to accelerate our ESG initiatives and lead the way towards a carbon neutral real estate sector. We set ourselves the highest standards by placing sustainability at the centre of our operations.

Our asset plans are designed to make the buildings more energy efficient and less carbon intense over its life cycle. We promote sustainable patterns in both consumption and production/modernisation, reduction of energy requirements and greenhouse gas emissions, to the benefit of our tenants, investors and communities.
