As an impact real estate investment group, it is important to remain conscious of the overall effect our operations are having on all stakeholders, including the environment. We are acutely aware that going beyond buildings carries with it a greater responsibility, especially in a sector that is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. We remain firmly committed to becoming Net Zero, setting a global benchmark for sustainability in African real estate.

We continuously measuring our non-financial performance against international benchmarks such as the EPRA Sustainability Indicators and internal goals to track delivery against objectives and the impact that initiatives have. These include carbon emissions, building efficiency, gender equality and local representation.

Carbon footprint

Our focus for the following years will be to consolidate our carbon footprint methodology to include all scope 1 and scope 2 emissions sources according to the GHG protocol. The result of this exercise will allow us to review our target and guide us in the consolidation of our Net Zero Pathway which include renewable energy strategies.


The use of technology and 4IR innovations are increasingly important in reducing our corporate and portfolio’s carbon footprint whilst supporting the incorporation of energy efficient designs that optimise natural elements and building materials in our developments that support staff wellbeing, overall health and performance.
