During our due diligence process we systematically launch a technical audit, an environmental audit, a green rating and an energy audit. Those audits allow us to have a fine knowledge of the actual ESG performance of the building, the action plan to improve this performance and the forecast performance. Based on those audits we elaborate a business plan on 10 years including the cost of the works to improve the ESG performance of the building specially the expense to reduce the consumption.
We don't do thematic exclusion. We do a mix of best in class and best in progress strategy. For that we select building with high ESG performance or building with a high potential of improvement.
For some of our clients we add audit about inside air quality and biodiversity.
The selection of the assets based on the interpretation of the different audits will depend of the policy of the client and his objectives. If the client has no specific objectives AEW Europe RI policy wil be respected. Except if the client has specific request the RI policy applied is the most biding between AEW Europe's policy and the client policy.
