Sustainability

BWP Trust is committed to the health and safety of its team members, contractors and visitors, to acting ethically and sustainably operating its businesses with respect to the environment. 

How we achieve this is summarised in Our Sustainability Principles.

Overview

The scale, domestic scope and relatively passive nature of our operations means that our impacts on the environment and society are relatively minor in local, national and global contexts. BWP Trust owns land and warehouse-style properties in Australia leased to other entities. The Trust does not typically engage in development work (other than capital expenditure related to the repositioning of a property where a vacancy has occurred), generally acquiring established properties or developments that pass to the Trust on completion.

However, we recognise that even modest changes, made collectively over time, can significantly effect the environment and society. Our sustainability strategy focuses on environmental factors, particularly climate change and emissions reduction.
