ESG Vision

We are committed to integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations across the logistics real estate development cycle of our activities and in our diligence, transparency and accountability processes.

We integrate ESG considerations into our business activities with a view to managing scarce natural resources, looking after the health, safety and wellbeing of our stakeholders, and ensuring effective corporate governance while striving to maintain positive financial returns.

ESG features at the earliest stages of our investment identification. We conduct feasibility studies with reference to stakeholder interests and specific ESG Due Diligence considerations. At the investment stage, we make decisions with regard for financial and non-financial risks, including climate risk. During asset development, we appoint contractors in accordance with sustainable development objectives, and strive to achieve local and internally recognised sustainability standards for our buildings. In all local offices, our leadership teams are setting goals and monitoring performance to facilitate meaningful reporting and disclosure.
