Our Sustainability Vision

To deliver premium risk weighted returns, KingSett embraces a vision that focuses on making investment decisions with a positive future impact and executing sustainable operational strategies to improve our tenants’ long-term needs and performance.

Through a formal sustainability policy and program, KingSett sets specific, measurable goals using key performance indicators. These enable us to integrate sustainability considerations into our business planning and decision making processes. We identify, assess and manage environmental risks associated with our operations across the lifecycle. Throughout, we build relationships with other stakeholders. Our activities comply with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements. In the interest of transparency, we prepare this annual report summarizing our sustainability activities.

KingSett will invest responsibly in sustainability enhancements to provide premium, risk-weighted returns. Our long term hold assets will be examples of sustainable real estate excellence.
