GWSCF SUSTAINABILITY

GPT and the Funds mutually view sustainability as core to their vision and values. Our vision is to be the most respected property company in Australia, in the eyes of our investors, people, customers and communities.

GPT’s integrated sustainability strategy addresses social and environmental aspects that are material to the business. Effective engagement and robust governance practices are central to the Group’s approach, which aims to improve the social, environmental and economic capital of the Group’s stakeholders and communities.

GPT is consistently ranked as one of the best performing property and real estate companies in international sustainability benchmarks.

In the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), in 2017 GPT was ranked second overall in the Real Estate sector and leads the sector internationally for the social dimension of the index.

For the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), in 2017 GWSCF increased score by 10 points to 83, achieved 5 Green Star status and is ranked amongst the top 10% of all respondents with above peer group average performance across policy and disclosure and building certifications and maximum score (100%) for Management and Policy and Disclosure categories.

The business case for reducing the environmental impacts is clear. If GWSCF had continued to consume energy, water and resources at the same rate as they were consumed in 2005, GWSCF and its tenants would have incurred $1.8 million of additional costs in 2016.
