Sustainable student accommodation

With Environmental, Social and Governance (‘ESG’) issues rapidly reshaping the real estate investment landscape and of increasing importance for all stakeholders we’re delighted to be working in partnership with luxury student accommodation provider true student to integrate ESG principles into their growing portfolio, nationwide.

As part of this important process we’re working with Planet Mark Business Certification being a recognised and credible symbol of sustainability progress. Certification demonstrates a business’ commitment to measuring and reducing their carbon emissions, ultimately contributing to their ESG credentials.

In addition, true student have chosen to measure their Social Value alongside their carbon measurement by reviewing the contribution that their organisation makes to society. The Social Value measurement looks at social, environmental and economic activities such as people, community and volunteering, donations, procurement, and positive environmental impact. It also focuses on the number of local employees and local procurement.
