EG has released our inaugural ESG Annual Report for 2020 detailing the importance of incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance factors through the lifecycle of investment management.
The report covers the progress in 2021 made towards achieving EG’s Responsible Investment Objectives in environmental optimisation, investment responsibility, culture and people and community enrichment.
“At EG, we have long been committed to creating sustainable outcomes through our real estate assets and in the communities in which we operate. This pandemic didn’t create or change that,” said EG’s CEO Adam Geha. “EG has been nimble, used this time to try new ideas and push our ESG efforts to new heights, after all disruption is the best time for growth.”
In light of growing awareness of ESG issues across the industry, the report stresses EG’s firm belief that financial returns are not achieved in isolation of prudent ESG management but rather in tandem with one another. A number of asset management and community enrichment case studies included in the report exemplify the execution of this approach, including the Build In Good community connection initiative and strategy of the High Income Sustainable Office Trust.
EG looks forward to continually pursuing our four responsible investment objectives in 2021 and for many years to come.
