BCI's approach to responsible property investment enhances the desirability, marketability, longevity, and competitiveness of property investments (and the communities in which they are located), contributing to and enhancing stable cash flows and investment returns.
Where possible the goal is to have all properties be environmentally friendly, energy efficient, barrier free, tenant friendly, and to have both design and function that are compatible with community standards.
QuadReal, a company created and 100 per cent owned by BCI, is required to adopt policies and implement procedures in all material aspects to generally comply with best practices, to carry on ethical business conduct and to promote fair dealing, including, without limitation, with respect to governance, social and environmental activities.
