Fiera Properties systematically integrates ESG factors into investment management. Our sustainability strategy and vision outlines how we integrate ESG into our business strategy.

Fiera Properties considers ESG during acquisitions and utilizes external consultants to provide subject expertise. Once owned, Fiera Properties works closely with third-party property managers to address ESG risks and opportunities. Fiera Properties embeds ESG management in third-party manager contracts and encourages managers to implement industry best practice ESG practices. Fiera meets with managers on a regular basis to discuss initiatives including audits (energy, water, waste), certifications, efficiency upgrades and overall building performance. Fiera assesses the merits of sustainability initiatives and improvements that properties propose and implement where appropriate.

Fiera Properties monitors ESG performance and reports to investors depending on individual mandates. The Fiera Properties CORE Fund LP participates annually in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark. This fund also tracks performance using an internal ESG Scorecard.
