DTZ Investors has an ESG committee formed by members with oversight and governance responsibility for objective setting, development of procedures and overseeing implementation of the RPI strategy and policy. This committee holds monthly, quarterly & annual meetings to ensure progress is maintained and that our strategy remains relevant and impact driven. Accountability and oversight for embedding of responsible property investment across the organisation is at the board level with ESG a standing agenda item at the Risk and Governance committee. The implementation of our policy and strategy is undertaken at portfolio level, being the responsibility of the fund and portfolio managers, who report into the ESG committee.
In addition, Fund and Portfolio Managers are involved in quarterly dedicated ESG meetings ensuring regular update of progress and holding individuals accountable for actions undertaken in the quarter. Responsibilities are executed through the management and oversight of asset managers who are responsible for environmental and social performance at individual properties.
