Responsible Investment is integral to how Schroder Real Estate manages its investments. We believe that by understanding and managing the impact of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations we can generate better long term returns for our clients, contribute to our tenants’ business performance and create tangible benefits to the communities in which they are located.
ESG is integral to our business planning and investment approval processes for direct real estate investment. For indirect investments in REITs and real estate funds, ESG considerations form an important part of our portfolio management process.
Schroder Real Estate maintains an Environmental Management System aligned with ISO 14001 to manage the deliverable actions derived from our Responsible Investment Policy. The system applies to all aspects of direct real estate investment including acquisition due diligence, asset management, refurbishment and development as well as services provided by third parties.
Schroders participates in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark “GRESB” which is the global standard for real estate funds and companies.
Schroder Real Estate is also a GRESB Fund Manager Member and a member of the Better Buildings Partnership.
