In 2014, Beni Stabili set out an ambitious roadmap of 29 annual targets to be achieved between 2014 and 2016.
These targets aligned closely with our material issues and the three focus areas of our sustainability strategy. Over the past 12 months Beni Stabili has achieved 8/11 (73%) of those requiring completion in 2015 and one target which was not achieved in 2014. In addition, we achieved our 2016 “Energy and Carbon” target ahead of schedule, as by December 2015, 100% of our managed portfolio procured 100% green electricity.
|Following analysis of portfolio EPC risk, approve and implement an EPC upgrade plan across the portfolio.|
|Governance||Become a signatory of the UN Global Compact.||Postponed to 2016|
|Energy and Carbon; Water; Waste||Monitor energy, water consumption, GHG emissions and waste generation and report publically (on an annual basis) and internally (on a quarterly basis) on progress made, including cost savings achieved as a result of efficiency measures.|
|Energy and Carbon; Water; Waste (2014 target)||Establish baseline data for annual energy consumption; GHG emissions; water consumption and waste generation (split by destination) at all relevant owned and managed assets and use this data to set public targets to improve performance.||Partially achieved|
|Energy and Carbon||Implement at least one energy reduction project with at least one tenant in at least 20% of buildings (by number or floor area) where Beni Stabili is responsible for purchasing utilities.|
|Health and Safety||Conduct at least two annual health and safety audits on our development projects and in all managed assets, focusing on ensuring that minimum health and safety procedures have been effectively implemented and that accurate and up-to-date records are available.|
|Tenants||Set up Environmental Working Groups in three major buildings and in all new developments, to identify where we can work together with tenants to make improvements and report in their achievements annually.|
|Sustainable Procurement||Ensure that 100% of bids and contracts with all property management service suppliers (cleaning, security and maintenance) include clauses for minimum requirements in relation to safety, social and environment standards.|
|Sustainable Procurement||Review our supply chain to assess how we can increase the procurement of locally or regionally-based goods and services.||Partially achieved|
|Community and Wellbeing||Be continuously involved in academic studies and support at least one academic research work every year.|
|Enhancement of the Public Realm||Carry out at least one example of an enhancement to the public realm (e.g. through architectural integration, community infrastructure, biodiversity, or public art).|
In 2016, we aim to achieve the final set of the 29 targets we set ourselves in 2014. We will also develop a new roadmap of annual targets up to 2020. Our 2016 targets can be found below.
|Trial LEED ‘Silver’ or equivalent for existing buildings in at least one building.|
|Energy and Carbon; Water; Waste||Set property-specific reduction targets for energy, water and waste.|
|Water||Carry out post-occupancy monitoring of energy and water consumption where Beni Stabili is responsible for purchasing utilities, in order to measure the success of our designs and influence the design of future schemes.|
|Water||Where feasible, include water saving systems such as rainwater or greywater harvesting in new developments.|
|Energy & Carbon (Achieved early - December 2015)||Review contracts across the portfolio and, where feasible (within 5% of current cost and depending on contract), procure the greatest extent of electricity from renewable sources.|
|Tenants||Pilot an exemplar sustainable fit-out with one tenant.|
