Helping to create Tomorrow's World

Edinburgh St James

Helping to create a Tomorrow’s World which supports thriving communities, businesses and ecosystems.

We believe it is our duty to create outstanding places for people in the communities of tomorrow, where community-wide prosperity is unlocked and environmental systems are restored. We fulfil this objective by being bold in our vision for places and by insisting on the highest standards of design, construction and operation, and by integrating a whole-life, real-life performance optimisation approach into our development and management processes.

We are helping to create a Tomorrow’s World which supports thriving communities, businesses and ecosystems by:

- providing our people with opportunities and encouragement to volunteer through the provision of time and match-funding, with a focus on educational, social, cultural and environmental stewardship projects;
- aiming to measure, benchmark and target key ESG metrics for all assets under management, whilst increasing our participation in, and engagement with respected industry organisations, such as the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), to help improve their relevance for our clients;
- seeking the highest practicable green building and wellness ratings for our development and major refurbishment projects, where there is a sensible business case for doing so;
- creating a stretching framework for sustainable development, refurbishment and fit-out projects, which is applicable in tailored form for all project sizes, types and locations;
- continuing to engage with prospective and existing occupiers to promote and facilitate more sustainable occupancy;
- seeking to enable the occupiers of our commercial properties to be successful and responsible businesses by providing support and collaborating on performance monitoring and enhancement initiatives.
