ESG / Environment

Actions

Vesta is committed to reducing the environmental and climate impact in our developments and operations, for the benefit of our tenants, the real estate industry, and the communities where we operate.

Vesta understands that, considering the characteristics of our core business, our stakeholder participation is key to achieving the sustainable development goals established by our environmental strategy. We also promote a culture of care and preservation of the environment, biodiversity and natural habitats where do we operate.

Sustainable Construction

Our developments are built by contractors based on the specifications of the Vesta Sustainable Construction Manual, which was drafted in 2012 in collaboration with a strategic partner and in accordance to international sustainable construction standards. Likewise, we measure the impact of our contractors before, during, and after they do their work by asking them to fill out a checklist that considers environmental, social, and governance topics. The Manual describes strategies to be used in designing industrial parks aimed at reducing environmental impact during construction, once the building is in use, and during its future demolition. These actions include:

Water

Energy and
Atmosphere

Material and
Resources

Indoor Environmental
Quality

Innovation

Enviromental Impact Mitigation Actions

Our Sustainable Construction Manual includes a number of strategies that are used during the design of our industrial buildings, thus reducing environmental impact during construction, usage, and eventual demolition of our buildings.

Climate Change and Resilience

Recent years have shown us that local and global conditions can change at any time, therefore at Vesta we seek to be more resilient by strengthening our processes and structure to be prepared for any adversity, including climate risks (TCFD, 2017).

To address the environmental issues in an orderly fashion, since 2018 we have conducted an environmental diagnosis of all our properties in order to determine what areas require short- medium- and long-term action plans. This creates the groundwork for our organization, tracking and reporting of main environmental indicators for common and leased areas. Since 2019, we have begun to identify climate change risks that are directly related to our operations in order to define a strategy and action plans to manage risks and take advantage of those that can become opportunities.

Leed Certification

At Vesta we promote the use of eco-efficient technologies that have the lowest water and energy impacts, by implementing LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). This international standard enabled us to reduce energy and water consumption and foster these sustainable practices with our main stakeholders.

In addition, all of our new inventory buildings were built in accordance with our internal “eco-efficient” guidelines, with which we underline our commitment to preserving the environment.
