OUR IMPACT ON THE
WORLD AROUND US
We believe that responsibility means more than ensuring minimum compliance and that the economic and environmental demands of society are finally converging.
We seek to deliver a positive social and environmental impact in conjunction with maximising long term value for our investors.
As a responsible investor, we consider environmental, social and governance factors in our investment decisions.
In practical terms, rather than purely investing in real estate that is already environmentally sound, this might mean investing in transforming an asset’s environmental credentials. As well as reporting on social impact, we actively seek investment opportunities that fulfil a social need.View our policy
