Sustainability at Quintain
The Quintain business model is based on the long term ownership of real estate assets where we can add value through active management or development. Our success relies on our properties accruing real economic value over time. To do this they must be positioned to respond to and draw competitive advantage from the medium- and long-term economic, environmental and social priorities of the UK. This concept sits at the heart of our sustainability strategy and informs our decision-making on all our assets. The management strategy for each portfolio, project and asset identifies and capitalises on opportunities to create social and environmental value, underpinning economic value.
This approach allows us to see the creation of social and environmental value as central to our business. Direct benefits accrue in many ways including reduced running costs on managed assets, more productive relationships with local planning authorities, interest from potential occupiers with strong covenants as our assets support their sustainability strategies. This leads to the creation of a virtuous circle in terms of driving up local land values through increased demand from business generating benefits for Quintain, our investors and the communities within which we operate.
