CCLA seeks to be an active owner of our property assets. Our approach ranges from taking general steps to improve the performance of our buildings to concentrating on specific assets where we have identified key issues.
Sustainability information is included in occupier handbooks that are distributed at our multi-let properties and sustainability is a standing agenda item for all occupier meetings. It is our hope that this will gradually improve the day to day performance of our buildings.
In addition to the above we have set an explicit target to reduce the footprint of the largest assets within our portfolio. This has required targeted interventions and detailed dialogue with occupiers. We also identified a specific issue in regards to water use at a building in London. We worked with one occupier to reduce the amount of water used; this rectified issues for all other tenants and reduced the overall usage in the building.
