ISPT believes that considering environmental, social and governance issues is a fundamental part of our fiduciary duty to our investors, occupiers and to the community. ISPT is committed to owning an environmentally sustainable portfolio and operating the portfolio in a way which minimises our footprint on the globe, conserves resources and mitigates climate change.
We endeavour to undertake this in a very practical way, delivering real savings by reducing energy, water and waste consumption. We believe tenants will become increasingly discerning in their selection of the premises they occupy and Superannuation Fund Managers will also prefer to invest with those funds which actively champion environmentally conscious real estate investing.
At ISPT we will continue to proactively explore ways to cost-effectively 'green' our portfolio whilst delivering both long-term investment value and favourable risk adjusted returns. We will not blindly spend money on initiatives and we have developed a cost benefit analysis process designed to incentivise the delivery of long term investment value.
ISPT aims to meet and exceed the expectations of our investors and tenants through partnering to educate, design and execute a sustainable real estate strategy that is customised and appropriate to each property investment, refurbishment and development. We have also adopted a partnership approach with many Government authorities and environmental agencies and have successfully lobbied and received several significant co-investment grants for major 'green' upgrades to our buildings.
We are proud of the work achieved in partnership with our tenants, property managers, environmental consultants and sustainability agencies. Our sustainability endeavours for investment management are threefold. We maintain our building operations and systems to be as environmentally efficient as possible, our ESG team works with prospective tenants to design the optimum sustainability fitout and our investment and property managers work with our tenants to educate on best practice in sustainable environmental behaviour.
Our Sustainability Case Studies highlight a selection of our properties, projects and achievements in our continuing environmental endeavours.
ISPT is proud to partner with the following groups in order to further ‘green’ our property portfolio.
