Minimising our environmental impact

We aim to create value for our customers, while minimising our impact on the environment.

Liberty is committed to managing those areas of our business with a direct impact on the environment, to protect valuable natural capital as well as to ensure the sustainability of our business going forward. The overall responsibility for environmental stewardship rests with the board, while oversight lies with the SET committee, which provides governance around environmental stewardship and key sustainability impacts for the group. The Group Real Estate Services (GRES) exco is responsible for executing on energy, water, waste and green building stewardship initiatives.

We see environmental stewardship and sustainability as a responsible business practice, and as an opportunity for energy, water, waste and cost savings. We treat environmental sustainability as an increasingly important component of business to position Liberty as a responsible corporate citizen with a strong brand.

While Liberty is not a significant consumer of natural resources, we recognise the critical role our property portfolio has on the environmental impact of our tenants and other third parties. Escalating prices of utilities coupled with supply constraints enhance the business case for responsible resource usage. We know that keeping the costs low for our tenants will improve occupancy rates, particularly in the office and retail sectors. These risks are being addressed and opportunities capitalised on through our environmental strategy.
