"As responsible investors, we consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and their impact on real estate investment. Addressing these issues from an investment perspective can deliver real value in terms of cost savings, enhanced returns and reduced regulatory and obsolescence risk. As a major investor in property, we participate in industry led initiatives like the BBP to share best practice and promote the acceptance and implementation of Responsible Investment within the industry." Barry Hill, Head of Asset Management for European Direct Real Estate and Chair of Aviva Investors Responsible Property Investment Committee.
