Our Sustainable Property Investment Framework aligns our practice with the principles set out in our Responsible Property Investment Policy.  It is regularly reviewed by our Sustainable Property Investment Committee and is applied to all occupied properties. Our framework not only supports our ISO 14001 system, but ensures that best practice is adopted in all areas of sustainable property management. The framework consists of seven key stages, supported by procedures, templates and technical information, using the UK Better Building Partnership toolkits and other industry best practise standards, wherever possible.  The areas are  summarised below:


  •  Policies and objectives - Maintaining corporate, LGP, and fund policies and objectives across all aspects of responsible property investment.
  • Annual Action Plans and Targets - Setting sustainability targets at asset level, fund level and across LGP which align with our publically stated targets and established industry practise.  Using our Asset Sustainability Plan (ASP) toolkit for every asset to ensure that a long term sustainability plan is established for each asset.
  • Monitoring- Quantitative data monitoring (Carbon Emissions, Energy, Water and Waste) monitoring via an industry standard M&T system and qualitative data via reports from our  managing agents network of building and property managers.
  • Active management – Undertaking the actions detailed in our Annual Action Plans and fund level objectives. This includes maintaining ISO 14001 accreditation, energy audits, reduction measures, renewable energy installations, tenant liaison activities, biodiversity and transport plans, community engagement activities and supply chain management.
