Our ESG Commitment

Striving to execute our strategies while making a positive impact

Pursuing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) best practices in our own operations and across our portfolio is critical to KingSett’s long-term success and creates stronger returns for our investors.

Our ESG Strategy

KingSett is committed to investing in sustainable and innovative solutions that enhance communities, mitigate risk, and reduce environmental impact.

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.

  • Investors can count on us to make innovative investment decisions that have a positive impact on the future
  • Our experienced team will put progressive development and operations strategies into practice every day
  • Tenants can expect us to provide prudent, creative solutions that meet their needs and satisfy their customers
