A high quality industrial and business space property portfolio that offers modern, well-located and efficient space is key to attracting and retaining customers. Our ability to manage our assets over their lifecycle, improves their longterm environmental and financial performance.
Ongoing energy monitoring across the portfolio, through the Smart Power system, provides detailed energy and carbon reporting data that enables performance benchmarking of our assets against industry targets.
Our greenhouse gas emissions for the 2017 financial year have been estimated at 2,058 tCO2, representing a decrease of 15% from the previous year. The divestment of inefficient building stock and new energy efficiency initiatives are the main contributors to the reduction. The total energy consumed is 15,506 MWhr, 86% is electricity with the balance natural gas. The calculations are derived from the property assets directly owned by the Trust and reflect energy consumption and carbon emissions from the operational management of these assets.
