TH Real Estate supports the launch of the Better Building Partnership Toolkit


TH Real Estate is proud to support the Better Building Partnership (BBP) Acquisitions Sustainability Toolkit, which launched on 11 July 2017.

Co-developed by TH Real Estate’s Global Head of Sustainability, Abigail Dean, working with other leading industry experts, the Toolkit provides non-sustainability professionals with easy to follow, non-technical guidance on how to address key sustainability issues within their portfolios.

Real estate investors are facing a wide range of sustainability risks and opportunities and the Toolkit enables investment and acquisition teams to:

  • Understand those sustainability issues which could be ‘investment critical’ and significantly influence the decision to acquire

  • Identify key questions that need to be asked during the due diligence process and that may affect pricing

  • Establish a sustainability profile of the asset, enabling it to be effectively integrated into the owner’s overall portfolio strategy

Abigail comments: "I am very pleased to have been involved in the development of the Toolkit which will help to provide the industry with a common approach to the integration of sustainability into acquisition. We fully endorse the Toolkit and are committed to integrating the guidance to further enhance our due-diligence processes and our approach to sustainability considerations on acquisitions."

Michael Neal, Head of UK Investment at TH Real Estate, adds: "Investing in Tomorrow’s World is at the core of our investment process and business operations and the integration of sustainability across our property portfolio is key to this. Through Abigail’s leadership, TH Real Estate has successfully established itself as a leader in sustainability and this Toolkit will be a strong asset to us as well as the wider industry."
