PR 04. Incorporating ESG issues when selecting investments

04.1. Indicate if your organisation typically incorporates ESG issues when selecting property investments.

04.2. Provide a description of your organisation`s approach to incorporating ESG issues in property investment selection.

Our funds have specific mandates regarding property types. Investment opportunities that fit within the mandates are evaluated using traditional financial metrics, as well as an ESG-analysis. This incorporates the use of an ESG DDQ to be completed by the relevant counterparts, which will often include both the seller of a property, the tenants, as well as the property managers. The investment team will consider the DDQ response and complete an ESG-analysis, which is presented to the relevant investment committees as part of the overall investment proposal. Due weight is given to specific risks, as well as potential opportunities that can provide value add to the investment proposal. Based on our climate strategy, we are currently putting more weight on long-term climate resilience, as well as the opportunities to make investments or modifications to the properties to enhance cash flows and underlying values.

04.3. Indicate which E, S and/or G issues are typically considered by your organisation in the property investment selection process, and list up to three examples per issue.
