We strive to reward shareholders whilst conducting responsible business activity that minimises our impact on the environment.
We understand that our responsibility to society is broader than simply generating financial returns to Shareholders.
As a responsible Business, we want the properties that we own to minimise their impact on the local and wider environment. When acquiring an asset, we consider the environmental performance of the asset and encourage a sustainable approach to new developments and to maintaining and upgrading existing buildings.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee is committed to addressing ESG-related factors systematically. The committee seeks to expand our understanding of the investment challenges related to issues - such as renewable energy, green house gasses, climate change and sustainability. The team is responsible for driving forward our objectives and will be updating and building on our approach to Environmental, Social and Governance matters. Our aim is to further integrate ESG related matters into all areas of the business.
Our Responsible Tenants Are Doing Their Part
Our tenants are actively engaged in contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to contribute to a better world. The Sustainable Development Goals recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, equality and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and working to preserve our ocean and forests.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
We are dedicated to improving the energy performance of all our assets post acquisition. Sustainability strategies have been implemented at each of our portfolio assets with 100% of our assets having a detailed environmental plan. To date, the most significant sustainability strategy project has been the 370kW rooftop solar array installation at our Thetford site. The Thetford solar array installation provides an estimated 85,000kg of C02 savings per annum for Tesco.
