Through the establishment of the Responsible Investment and Property Committee, we created an ESG decision-making body which convenes on a quarterly basis at the Responsible Investment and Property Governance meeting to review ESG performance. The outsourced ESG Coordinator acts as Secretariat to the quarterly Responsible Investment and Property Committee.
BNPPRE collect, monitor and attempt to improve environmental performance data for all properties managed for CCLA. This includes water and electricity use. The use and take-up of green leases clauses within standard leases are actively tracked.
We have continued to drive improvements in the ESG performance of our largest properties. Following increased resource, this will be extended to more assets in our portfolio in the coming year.
We increased our tenant and community engagement programmes. Each local authority (within which we own properties) and tenant recieved at least one communication about CCLA's commitment to ESG issues during the year. This stressed our desire to work collaboratively to improve our buildings responsible investment performance.
