OUR IMPACT ON THE
WORLD AROUND US
By investing in technologies and digital infrastructure that enable buildings to be managed in a more sustainable and efficient way, we believe our funding can catalyse lasting environmental and social change.
As a responsible investor, we consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investment decisions. But we believe we can have an impact that goes far beyond due diligence on investments.
That impact is realised through identifying and investing in technologies that deliver environmental benefits – such as reduced energy consumption and smarter use of resources – while offering commercial benefits to businesses and property owners.
It comes through helping improve the environmental performance of heritage buildings, which form so much of the UK’s real estate.
It's found through investing in the digital infrastructure and data centres that society needs to enable hybrid working, remote learning and creative collaboration.
Our impact doesn’t come just through our investment
Investing with this mindset not only means we capitalise on technological innovation, but also that we are in the vanguard of the change we’re witnessing in the real estate sector.
Our impact doesn’t come just through our investment; we also firmly believe in encouraging and supporting our people to engage in activities that deliver positive social outcomes. From direct involvement in community projects, to serving as school governors or charity trustees, our people are highly engaged and committed to multiple good causes.Our ESG Policy
