Greengage has been appointed as one of five ‘best in class’ sustainability experts who will be giving strategic support to Aberdeen Asset Management on a new Sustainable Development Framework.
The new framework will ensure that all aspects of sustainability are proactively considered for all of Aberdeen’s major refurbishments and new development projects in the UK. This includes energy efficiency post occupancy evaluation, health and wellbeing of occupiers, local community engagement and investment.
This initiative forms part of Aberdeen’s global Responsible Property Investment strategy which includes plans to improve the sustainability, and energy efficiency across its £19.3 billion property portfolio. This programme will be launched initially in the UK but a comparable initiative will be rolled out across Europe over time.
Estelle Hunt, Head of Project Development Management at Aberdeen Asset Management, commented: “This is not about a box ticking exercise, or about chasing green certificates. The panel of sustainability experts have been specifically selected to help us achieve our long term objectives and ensure that we are future proofing the portfolio to the benefit of both our investors and our occupiers.”
