In our Due Diligence Checklists, we include measurable sustainability factors appropriate to the asset class and market.
We require investment teams to evaluate opportunities for green improvements for each asset prior to acquisition. We routinely engage third-party consultants to evaluate the physical and environmental characteristics of potential investments to identify opportunities for improvements that would reduce a property’s environmental impact.
Each team considers these findings when defining the investment strategy and capital expenditure program for a property, including location; energy savings; building environmental characteristics (orientation, facades, landscape, etc.); presence of harmful materials or contamination; access to public transportation and environmental characteristics impacting tenants (luminosity, olfactory comfort, etc.); as well as other relevant sustainability factors.
