Transparency is a core value of responsible investment. Disclosing how property investors address environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in their strategic decisions and day-to-day performance is key to implementing a responsible property investment (RPI). This brief toolkit outlines steps for responsible property investors to disclose their ESG strategies and performance. It looks specifically at how property investors can design and implement an ESG report that discloses:
- Corporate governance and strategies on ESG-related issues
- ESG performance against year-over-year benchmarks
- Targets for future performance improvements
- Case studies that reveal how ESG issues are engaged in practice
This is the third in a series of toolkits produced by the Property Working Group (PWG) coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative. The Toolkit series are produced in conjunction with the Responsible Property Investing Center, to support the dissemination of RPI in the global real estate industry.
