Transform Tomorrow

Transforming real estate through ESG

Watch our vision video

Investa is transforming today for tomorrow.

Because what happens beyond zero will shape the way we live and work for many years to come.

Investa is transforming today, for tomorrow. Reimagining the way we live and work, regenerating our built environment, and building a more resilient business for the future.

We’ve led the way in sustainability for over two decades. As the first Australian real estate business to make a commitment to net zero emissions, we have always believed in setting the bar higher.

  • First Australian real estate company to commit to a net zero Science Based Target by 2040
  • First to secure real estate green bonds and green loans verified by the globally-recognised Climate Bonds Initiative
  • First Investment Manager in Australia to receive Sustainable Responsible Investment Certification from the Responsible Investment Association of Australia
  • Investa funds have been recognised in the top quintile of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) for almost 10 years

And now, as we approach net zero, we’re looking at what comes next. Our ESG strategy is focused on net positive impacts for health, wellbeing and the environment. From the way we finance our projects to future-proofing our business, we are transforming our buildings, our communities and our business for tomorrow.

  • Reimagine the way we live and work
  • Regenerate our built environment
  • Build a more resilient business for the future
  • Transform today, for tomorrow

Transform Tomorrow signals the evolution of Investa’s commitment as we look beyond zero.

It sets the bar higher once again, and empowers us to transform real estate through ESG.

Investa’s ESG strategy defines our focus on future opportunities by:

  • Broadening our areas of responsibility
  • Connecting us to our building communities and employees more closely
  • Increasing our commitments to investors
  • Challenging our teams to constantly look for more innovative ways to develop and manage our buildings

Our ESG Strategy.

Transforming the future of real estate means developing resilient buildings, communities and business practices and ensuring we have a net-positive impact on our environment.

How we'll achieve our goals:

Sustainable Buildings Icon

Sustainable Buildings

We have made a net zero carbon building commitment and have a four-step pathway to net zero for the operational (scope 1 and 2) emissions we control. This includes:

  • Energy efficient buildings
  • Electrification strategy to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels
  • '100% renewable energy target' – onsite, where possible, and through renewable procurement.
  • Offset residual carbon through certified Australian nature-based carbon offsets

Our commitment also extends to reducing emissions from our customers and supply chain (our Scope 3 emissions) and includes:

  • Carbon calculator to reduce capital works project carbon emissions
  • Targeting 42% reduction in tenant electricity emissions
  • Targeting carbon neutral developments from 2030

Transforming tomorrow means enabling people in our buildings to live and work in a low carbon environment to reduce the effects of climate change.
