Castleforge ESG Report
Today we are proud to launch our 2023 report, detailing our efforts to integrate ESG considerations across all business activities.
Our approach focuses on 3 key pillars where we can deliver the most meaningful impact:
- Built Environment: Across all investment strategies, we target assets approaching obsolescence and implement improvements targeted at achieving the highest possible levels of energy efficiency and sustainability. Meeting that bar means responsible sourcing alongside reuse and recycling of building materials.
- Community: In 2022 we launched our first Article 8 Fund under the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations to actively promote environmental and social characteristics through all investments, including via Ocasa (our residential operating platform) and Clockwise (our serviced office business). ESG criteria are an integral part of our underwriting process as we strive to invest responsibly and create a more sustainable future for all communities where we have a presence.
- People: We recognise that we need to attract and retain the best possible talent to achieve our ambitious goals. We want to continue to make Castleforge a fantastic place to work by giving our colleagues the opportunity to learn and grow within an environment that encourages the team to reach its full potential.
This report publicly outlines our ESG targets. We will report against these targets annually to ensure transparency as we work towards achieving, and maintaining, our ESG commitments.
