Corporate responsibility and sustainability are everyday considerations for our business.
We have obligations to a wide group of stakeholders and managing our business to balance these interests improves our long-term environmental, social and financial performance, while supporting the sustainable growth of our business.
Sustainable development and corporate performance
We are committed to protecting and enhancing the natural environment and improving the design, efficiency and operating performance of all our buildings.
We have made a commitment to sustainable development and have achieved a rating of 90d from the global Carbon Disclosure Project in 2015. Our greenhouse gas emissions, have been calculated as 2,863 tCO2, while total energy consumed equated to 18,335 MWhr, 85% of which is derived from the consumption of electricity.
This year's greenhouse gas emissions represent a decrease of 21% from 2015.
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 long-term environmental and financial performance.
Our business operates within a highly regulated business environment. We retain skilled staff and specialist external advisors to manage these obligations and ensure compliance across all our activities.
Engagement and reporting
As a leading NZX investment entity we have a responsibility to provide timely, balanced and readily available information to the investment community, customers, our people and regulators.
Engaging and supporting the communities in which we operate enhances our business. Through the Goodman Foundation we directly sponsor certain charities while the Good+Deeds programme supports work place gifting.
In its management of GMT, Goodman has implemented numerous initiatives that demonstrate its understanding of its wider obligations.
