ESG Committee


The aim of the committee is to establish a unified view of ESG, increasing understanding of all three aspects, environmental, social and governance, and to promote robust standards of corporate governance that integrate all these aspects for non-listed real estate vehicles. This will help the industry more effectively integrate ESG factors into the real estate investment decision-making process. 

Key objectives

  • Emphasise importance of environmental measures, sustainability goals and performance, at both a vehicle and asset level.
  • Provide best practice on the structure, policies and regulations that impact investments  
  • Increase understanding and awareness of corporate governance and social aspects that impact the industry 
  • Implement and promote common and workable standards of corporate governance for non-listed real estate vehicles
