Goodman European Partnership (GEP) is one of our European funds. Sustainability is a key part of the Partnership’s operating strategy, designed to increase the long-term value of the portfolio. GEP’s focus is on: pro-actively managing capex investments to maximize sustainability upgrades, improving the sustainable attributes of the existing portfolio, ensuring that new properties meet a high sustainability standard and incorporating sustainable design principles into new developments.
Goodman has a DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) master plan in place for Germany which standardizes the processes required for the green certification of newly-built projects.
‘Green leases’ are a new development in 2016, introduced to increase sustainability awareness and encourage the tenant to act in a sustainable manner.
