Global Partner Solutions

The LaSalle Global Partner Solutions (GPS) team works with their partners and advisors to ensure investments are managed in a sustainable manner.

All investment decisions are made utilizing a robust, three-level due diligence process that includes drilling to an investment’s ESG policies, philosophy and measurement, ensuring GRESB participation and checking against a list of restrictions.

Every quarter, the team provides a detailed ESG update in all client reports, highlighting our engagement, governance and voting, due diligence processes and GRESB results as well as the LaSalle GPS Future Trends Survey (e.g. climate, fire, and flood risks).

Global Securities

LaSalle’s Global Securities team are actively engaged with the investments they make, working with companies to identify ESG risks and opportunities material to their business, manage their ESG risks effectively and enhance their corporate disclosure of ESG policies and performance. It is our belief that these actions will enhance industry best practices on ESG issues and continuously raise the level of expectation and integration for ESG principles.

ESG factors are incorporated into the team’s investment process as we believe that strong ESG integration can lead to higher earnings, more resilient business models, and more sustained long-term growth.

The UK Stewardship Code

LaSalle is a signatory of the UK Stewardship Code. The code sets high stewardship standards for those investing on behalf of UK savers and pensioners and those that support them, including many of our clients. Approved signatories of the code must demonstrate the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the environment, society and the economy.

Better Buildings Partnership

As an active member of the UK Better Buildings Partnership (BBP), we are working with our peers to lead the commercial industry in enhancing the sustainability of existing buildings. We signed the BBP Climate Change Commitment in September 2019, which has set us on a path to reach net zero carbon (NZC) by 2050. We are taking urgent, collective action to respond to the challenges of climate change and address the risks it poses to our clients’ portfolios.

Net Zero Carbon Pathway

Our Net Zero Carbon Pathway sets out how we aim to achieve NZC within our European portfolio by 2050. This challenge requires a holistic view of our activities as a real estate investment manager and addresses carbon at all stages of the asset lifecycle. This strategy is now integrated into our way of working and starts with investment strategy. As we seek to expand this program globally, we will publish annual updates to the pathway, inline with the Better Buildings Partnership Climate Change Commitment, with the aim of driving the industry towards NZC.
