In 2016, we increased our Carbon Disclosure Project score from 98B to A- (scoring methodology has changed this year to a single letter score). Scores were based on disclosure, awareness, management and leadership with regards to carbon management and climate change risk.
We gained a Green Star for the third year in a row for the GRESB survey. This year we acheived 76, exceding both the GRESB Average score of 60 and the Peer Average score of 70. The GRESB allows us and our investors to measure our sustainability performance within the real estate sector.
We were awarded another Gold in the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) Sustainability Awards for 2016. We were one of 25 companies that achieved exceptional compliance with the EPRA Sustainability Best Practices Recommendations in our public reports and disclosures.
We were once again included in the FTSE4Good Index, which helps us assess our achievements against a transparent and evolving global corporate responsibility standard.
We continued to hold our Investors in People accreditation for the 13th year in a row.
