The Trust is committed to acting responsibly and ethically, and operating its business in a manner that is sustainable. Principles based on the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, have been developed for incorporating environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) issues in to how the Trust conducts its business, and are embedded in policies, practices and processes.
The Trust’s approach takes into account the size and nature of the Trust’s operations and the relatively modest actual or potential impacts on the environment and society.
Environmentally, the Trust’s ownership and management of established commercial property is considered to be low in intensity in terms of emissions, waste, and use of energy and materials, and low impact on biodiversity. Social and governance impacts are limited due to the passive nature and localised scope of the Trust’s operations and the regulated environment in which it operates.
