Environmental stewardship

Our understanding of being a responsible investor extends to the adoption of sustainable practices.

We believe that using resources efficiently makes commercial sense and, as an organisation that thinks in the long-term, we also believe it is the right thing to do.

Environmental initiatives include those that:

  • Act as a catalyst to develop or promote wider environmental activities or actions within the wider community;
  • Promote a responsible approach to the environment through the adoption of relevant procedures and working practices;
  • Help to demonstrate, promote and educate the users of the facilities in relation to environmental issues; and
  • Support trials and proof of concept tests for environmental improvements or energy efficiency measures that would not otherwise be implemented because there is no proven value-for-money test. 

An example is set out in the case study below.
