Sustainability and Green Initiatives
For new acquisitions, third-party specialists are engaged during the due diligence process to inspect the physical and environmental condition of the investment and evaluate opportunities to reduce the asset’s environmental impact. Physical upgrades and “green” initiatives are formulated for potential investments during the due diligence process and are defined in the investment strategy and capital expenditure program for each asset. Factors considered include location, energy savings, building environmental characteristics (orientation, facades, landscape, etc.), the presence of harmful materials or contamination, access to public transportation, and environmental characteristics impacting tenants (luminosity, olfactory comfort, etc.).
In addition, Sustainability and Green Initiatives are shown as part of Phase III of our Investment Process during asset management: operations and execution.
