Overview

PR 08. ESG issues in post-investment activities

New selection options have been added to this indicator. Please review your prefilled responses carefully.

08.1. Indicate if your organisation, and/or property managers, considers ESG issues in post-investment activities relating to your property assets.

08.2. Indicate whether your organisation, and/or property managers, considers ESG issues in the following post-investment activities relating to your property assets.

08.3. Describe how your organisation, and/or property managers, considers ESG issues in post-investment activities related to your property assets.

Both USS and our Property managers consider ESG issues to be extremely important, hence monthly meetings are held where such issues are discussed, actioned and resolved.

We operate an active ESG post-acquisition programme whereby the asset's waste, water and energy consumption (if there are common parts) are monitored.  An action plan is put in place to address any potential improvements raised during the due diligence process.

The asset is also immediately monitored for Health and Safety purposes by our Property Managers.  This includes ensuring all Health and Safety compliance requirements are being adhered to.

We also look at what socio-economic, biodiversity and community initiatives the asset can support e.g. supporting local charities and installing bug hotels.
