Creating a positive impact by 2030
Sustainability and a culture of responsibility is embedded throughout every aspect of our business, as we understand that acting sustainably and responsibly is fundamental to our ability to deliver long-term value for shareholders and other stakeholders.
As part of our ambition to create a positive environmental and socio-economic impact by 2030, we focus on developing and owning large-scale logistics real estate that delivers net positive impacts. For Tritax EuroBox, this means developing net zero carbon buildings which benefit from cutting edge, sustainable design, as well as proactively upgrading our existing assets to ensure they meet high sustainability standards. Equally, it entails creating social value in the communities where our assets are located through our investment in European logistics, whilst also enhancing wellbeing, nature and biodiversity at our assets for the benefit of our occupiers and local communities.

Focusing on where we can make the greatest difference
We have defined and implemented a sustainability strategy that supports the Company’s overall sustainability ambition to create a positive environmental and socio-economic impact by 2030. This strategy aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals targeting the following specific goals: Sustainable Cities and Communities, Climate Action, Life on Land and Decent Work and Economic Growth.
Our strategy is focused on four key goals that concentrate on where we believe we can make the greatest impact. These sustainability 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 that collaboration is key to achieving our goals. As the landlord and owner of a large logistics portfolio located throughout continental Europe, 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.
