We integrate sustainability into our investment model, with a focus on maximising investor returns while ensuring transparency and accountability from an ESG perspective.
Our strategy and outcomes are benchmarked against independent rating tools to measure outcomes and provide the market with insights into our operational performance and ESG progress.
In FY23, we were proud to maintain Australia’s largest Green Star Performance
rated portfolio across Office, Retail and Industrial & Logistics asset
classes, leveraging best-in-class independent rating tools to measure our progress and drive environmental and social outcomes.
We also strengthened our partnership with the International Well Building Institute, who recognised our Office portfolio with the largest WELL at Scale and WELL Health and Safety rating in the country, ensuring we continue to manage workplaces that deliver health and well-being outcomes for tenant customers.
