Per Article 10 of the European Union’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (“SFDR”),
certain market participants are required to disclose information regarding how sustainability
considerations factor into their investment and portfolio management processes.
As part of its investment process, Heitman seeks opportunities to achieve operating efficiencies
for assets in its portfolios. Heitman also evaluates sustainability factors on an ongoing basis,
to insure risks (including those relating to environmental matters) are mitigated as part of its
investment manager process. We believe this approach can enhance investment returns.
As part of the decision-making and asset management processes, we aim to achieve the following
goals and objectives:
Improve operating efficiency through adoption of best practices, including: (i) implementation
of innovative technologies and strategies and (ii) ongoing identification, monitoring and
assessment of environmental risks and exposures associated with the underlying asset, if any.
Ensuring that all investment decisions align with our firm’s core values and that these values
are transmitted through our employees to the stakeholders associated with our investments.
Uphold strong ethical and corporate governance standards through transparency and integrity,
and by working or investing with firms that have demonstrated the same.
