Additional Information

‒ Carrying out a complete audit of all electricity, gas and water meters or sub-meters under our control to ensure that they are all functioning properly and recording consumption accurately. We plan to replace a small number of meters in 2023, which are now obsolete Maximising renewable opportunities To reduce the carbon footprint of our operational emissions, we are focusing on increasing our on-site renewable energy opportunities across our assets. This year we have installed three schemes and undertaken six renewable energy feasibility studies to identify asset-specific opportunities across the portfolio.

Reducing operational carbon Over the year we have been introducing energy efficiency measures across the portfolio to help measure and reduce occupier energy consumption, including: ‒ Developing an occupier engagement plan to ensure actions take place in a timely manner and effective cost-sharing mechanisms are introduced ‒ Continuing to include green lease clauses within our leases, with 64 completed this year ‒ Increasing data collection coverage to 85% and implementing a new data management system

Maximising off-site renewable procurement Within our portfolio currently 100% of landlord procured electricity is REGO backed (Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin). When our electricity contracts expire, we will seek to procure high-quality renewables in line with the UKGBC guidance on renewable energy procurement. We seek to follow three main criteria on renewable energy procurement. It must be from renewable non-fossil fuel energy sources; create additional capacity in the grid; and have exclusive ownership and claims of the energy attributes.
