“We acknowledge the global challenge that we all face as a society and recognise that like-minded businesses want to work with firms that demonstrate a heightened awareness of the issues and demonstrate appropriate action. As a sustainability aware team we have embedded responsible investment, development and operational practices into the core of our business.”
Ed Ellerington – Chief Executive Officer
In order to realise this vision, ESG practices and processes are fundamental to the delivery of our services throughout the investment, development and management stages of the property life cycle.
Ensure sustainability is considered from the outset of our involvement with a project:
Delivering resilient and sustainable developments:
Promote, facilitate and monitor the sustainable use of homes by customers:
In 2015, all UN Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Underlying ‘Agenda 30’ are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which address the urgent call to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and to protect our planet. The targets we have set for ourselves in order to meet our ESG commitments have been aligned with a number of these SDGs, but we have placed particular focus on the below:
DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION

In addition to reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with our investment, development and management activities, we are also committed to reducing the emissions related to our immediate business operations.
The business is co-located in a Central London office with our corporate shareholder, Fiera Real Estate UK, the majority of our business operational emissions are covered by our joint Net Zero Carbon (NZC) commitment, and so opportunities to reduce emissions are being actively identified and implemented. The remaining emissions are predominantly related to transport, and we are focused internally on monitoring and reducing those emissions on an on-going basis.
