Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) is one of Europe’s largest institutional asset managers and a major global investor. Throughout the past 40 years we have built our business through understanding what matters most to our clients and transforming this insight into valuable, accessible investment products and solutions. We provide investment expertise across the full spectrum of asset classes including fixed income, equities, commercial property and cash. Our capabilities range from index-tracking and active strategies to liquidity management and liability-based risk management solutions.

LGP has a strong and long-term commitment to sustainability and responsible investment, adopting or investing in pioneering solutions, Sustainability is now arguably one of the most critical agents of change in real estate ownership. From a fund management perspective, the drivers of behaviour are primarily about protecting the medium to long term value of portfolios, whilst adding value, and acting in a socially responsible manner.  We believe that through the integration of sustainable thinking and behaviour in everything we do, we will deliver enhanced returns to our investors.

Our commitment to sustainability is driven by the recognition that the built environment has a very significant impact on UK society and its ecosystem, including contributing almost half of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions.  It is our belief that sustainability already sites alongside location, tenant, building size and building quality as a key factor in real estate’s value and performance and its importance will only increase over time.

As one of the UK’s largest landlords we are highly conscious of our responsibility to go over and above the industry norm of only ‘greening’ part of a property portfolio or specific funds, and instead aim to put environmental and social sustainability at the heart of our property investment decision making.  The fact that we apply leading edge environmental and social governance brings numerous benefits, many of which are economic. Through consistently applying best practice sustainability criteria, across our entire portfolio, including our Environmental Management System (EMS), certified to ISO 14001 since 2005.

Multi-award winning,  LGP has won numerous awards over the last two years, including Property Fund Manager of the Year at the UK Property Awards, Property Manager of the Year at the UK Pensions Awards and UK Fund Manager of the year at the UK Estates Gazette awards.

The majority of our properties are managed by single tenants, on a 'Fully Repairing and Insuring ' (FRI) lease.  Hence the tenant has full operational, maintenance and repairing control over the property.  From previous surveys we have calculated the total carbon footprint of all activities on our sites and established that 5% is within our operational control and 95% within the operational control of our tenants.

All sites where we have some operational control are managed by outsourced managing agents, whose contracts contain a number of sustainability KPI's with risks and rewards.  They are then also required to set KPI's throughout their supply chain and report the performance of their suppliers in terms of sustainability, on a quarterly basis.

We have tendered our first contract for managing agents, which includes asking them to report quarterly on their social value, using the Social Value Portal (SVP) methodology, which we helped SVP develop via a joint research project with the British Council of Offices/
