Creating an altogether better future

Environmental, Social and Governance strategy

Our approach

At Bayleys, we recognise the crucial role that businesses can play in creating a more sustainable future by reducing the overall impact on the environment and supporting people.

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy outlines how we can cultivate a more proactive approach to the important social and environmental issues facing our business, the wider real estate industry, and the world today.

It reflects our commitment to operating with integrity and transparency, and our belief that a responsible and sustainable business model is essential for both long-term corporate success and leaving a lighter global footprint.

Through our ESG initiatives, we aim to create value for all our stakeholders - our employees, clients, shareholders, business partners, and the communities we operate in.

We believe that by embedding sustainability into our business model and operational decision-making, and by working together, we can create a better, more sustainable Aotearoa for future generations.

Our values and framework

We acknowledge that operating in a more sustainable way is challenging and will always be a work in progress. The framework we have developed focusses on a set of key environmental, social and governance-related objectives that mesh with Bayleys’ corporate values and align with best-practice global pillars including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals we feel most relevant.

Bayleys values

  • Client care – We recognise that clients pay our wages.
  • People - We respect our people and value their contributions.
  • Innovation - We recognise innovation as a point of difference.
  • Continuous improvement - We aim to be better today than yesterday, better tomorrow than today.
  • Performance - We are accountable for the achievement of results.

Thought leadership

Reducing carbon emissions remains key to green building, but sustainable real estate is evolving into a more complex beast.

Owners of commercial and industrial property need to take proactive steps to protect the value of their assets.

ESG factors are a key consideration across sectors in the commercial property world today, impacting lending, acquisitions, governance and social responsibility.

The importance of sustainability across the commercial and industrial property market is accelerating as calls for decarbonisation become louder and a building’s “whole-of-life” input/output comes under scrutiny.

A new wave of environmental, social and governance (ESG) features is sweeping the property world with New Zealand owners and investors proving quick to adopt them.

Pressure is mounting for the commercial property sector to wholeheartedly get onboard the sustainability and accountability train.

Commercial real estate investors, developers and owners are embracing the move towards more efficient and eco-friendly commercial buildings, helped along by growing government mandates globally.

Sustainability principles and the pursuit of green certification is increasingly becoming best-practice in the industrial space with listed entities and large corporates leading the way.
