We understand that real estate is a long term asset class. Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) philosophy is centred on delivering sustainable, long term performance by considering ESG factors within our investment decision-making and ownership practices, providing us with greater insight into potential risks and opportunities that will impact the value, performance and reputation of the investment we make on behalf of our clients. From decades of real estate investing we understand what’s right for a building, and we look to add value to our clients’ assets so they realise their full potential.
Apart from integrating ESG factors throughout our investment process, AMP Capital Property has been at the forefront in providing support to Government and industry bodies to develop the tools required to measure, innovate and promote responsible investment in building efficiency.
Throughout AMP's long history, we have been closely intertwined with the community through our customers and clients, planners, staff and shareholders. For AMP Capital Property, our approach connects our teams with our communities through major partnerships with national charities, initiatives supporting local charities and community organisations and Connect Days, enabling our staff to support AMP Foundation activities.
For more information on AMP Capital Property's approach to ESG and our community involvement, please read AMP Capital’s Real Estate ESG and Community Report.
AMP Capital participated for the third time in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) on behalf of our three flagship funds and three separate account portfolios. All six portfolios maintained their Green Star status in 2013, in recognition of outstanding management and implementation of key sustainability issues.
GRESB is a highly regarded organisation, backed by many Australian superannuation funds and international investors, engaged in independent evaluation of sustainability performance of real estate portfolios.
AMP Capital continues to strive to deliver long-term sustainable returns for our clients, with a strong focus on identification and management of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities, in accordance with our ESG and responsible investment guidelines.
