Future-Proofing portfolio

Future-Proofing portfolio

To us, future-proofing our portfolio means selecting relevant assets and making these more sustainable, both economically, socially and environmentally. We aim to create inspiring urban environments that will retain their appeal for future generations and seek to align with the sustainability agenda of municipalities by improving both the environmental and social impact on local communities and business where each asset is located.

How do we measure and improve?

To measure progress in future-proofing the portfolios we manage, we have been using the
BREEAM* methodology since 2009. BREEAM is the internationally applied and recognised sustainability certification methodology developed by BRE. BRE (Building Research Establishment) is a UK-based multi-disciplinary building science organisation that aims to improve the built environment through research and knowledge generation.

We use the BREEAM In-Use methodology to determine which actions to undertake as well as to measure and monitor our progress. The intent is to set achievable and realistic targets without jeopardising the financial and commercial objectives at asset level. By doing so, we demonstrate our ambition to continuously improve the environmental performance of our portfolio.
