Creating a positive impact by 2030
Sustainability and a culture of responsibility is embedded across the Group. Acting sustainably and responsibly is fundamental to our ability to deliver long-term value for shareholders and other stakeholders. We develop and own logistics real estate that delivers net positive impacts through cutting edge, sustainable design, investment and asset management, to create a positive environmental and socio-economic impact by 2030.
We are committed to creating a net positive impact through our activities, driving social, environmental, and economic value for our shareholders and wider stakeholders. We are working towards this ambition by developing and managing net zero carbon buildings with high green building standards, enhancing nature and biodiversity, and creating social value through our investment.
We recognise that we cannot achieve this alone and we seek to collaborate with our stakeholders to achieve our ambition. For Tritax Big Box this means developing and upgrading logistics assets to meet high sustainability standards, defined in line with industry standards, such as BREEAM, RICS, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and engaging with our industry peers to further sustainability in logistics.

Focusing on where we can make the greatest difference
We have identified four sustainability goals that enable us to make the greatest impact. These goals enable us to mitigate significant ESG risks and capitalise on opportunities to create sustainable, long-term value. These goals include short- and medium-term targets and metrics to measure impact. These initial targets are set to be achieved by 2023 from a 2020 baseline.
We recognise we cannot achieve these goals alone; collaboration is key. As the landlord and owner of one of the largest logistics portfolios throughout the UK, we have a significant role as a facilitator of sustainable operations. Although we do not have direct operational control of our assets, where we can, we bring interested parties together to deliver sustainability solutions. Our focus is to initiate, facilitate, partner and encourage our stakeholders to achieve collective sustainability goals.
