ESG plays a pivotal role in our core values and investment strategies. Projects and operational platforms that follow ESG best practice will perform better in terms of equity investment returns, access to bank financing and capital market transaction performance.
Ailon operates as an owner with a long-term perspective taking into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) responsibilities when making business decisions and when managing the company’s resources. We make high demands for good ethics and business integrity from our suppliers, consultants and contractors.
We use Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) to verify energy performance of our properties. Each project/property has a strategic plan formulated with clear sustainability targets and identified sustainability risks. Each building has an energy transition strategy, designed to make the building more energy-efficient and less carbon-intensive over its full life cycle. The energy transition strategy is broken down in pre-study and risk assessments, energy efficiency targets, implementation of transition and improvements, performance benchmarking and achieved quantifiable performance improvements.
Our redevelopments repurpose original buildings to recycle materials and cut waste. Our developments use modular construction to make best use of materials. We certify all our new buildings and continue to develop some of the greenest buildings in our target markets. Our sustainability work for new build properties is broken down into the following areas; Energy & Climate, Ecosystems & Water, Climate Adaption, Materials, Hazardous Substances & Waste, Health & Wellbeing and Equal Conditions & Participation.
We are committed to the highest standard of corporate governance and have created a resilient and sustainable business in which our stakeholders can have confidence and trust.
