GPT employs an ISO-based approach to managing ESG risks and opportunities, including through our ISO14001 certified Environmental Management System (EMS).
- determining our material impacts and understanding stakeholders’ expectations;
- setting policies and objectives to address these;
- establishing comprehensive and systematic methods for delivering on objectives;
- ensuring rigorous data management; and,
- implementing a system of continuous improvement.
To support this GPT maintains mature data capture, management, storage and review methods. We utilise a number of platforms, such as envizi, to improve the reliability and integrity
of data management and use these platforms to derive insight, inform decision-making and track accountability for delivery of both sustainability and commercial objectives. We apply the principles of simplicity, accountability, integrity and transparency in these systems and increasingly seek to automate and verify data capture and integrity as the data sources increases in materiality to the total data set.
Our approach, including controls and incentives for delivery, the platforms and accountabilities we use and other procedures has been recognised as world-leading for over a decade through investor benchmarks such as the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment and Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB).
