Provide a brief description of your organisations selection, appointment and monitoring of third party property managers and how they contribute to the management of ESG issues for your property investments.
Our selection of third-party managers is fundamentally focused on the appropriate mix of executional capabilities and values alignment. We expect that any third party manager would be held to identical standards of our wholly owned management entities, both in terms of ongoing impact performance as well as reporting. In fact, even at the earliest stages of our inception, we partnered closely with third party managers to develop the expectation and habituation of ESG measurement and reporting that has led to our engagement of wholly owned managers and the process of developing and refining projects that have a combined mission- and returns-driven focus. This partnership has led to an active back-and-forth with third party managers on innovation implementation that is consistent with our ESG-focused AC Way framework.
