Each year the Association of Real Estate Funds makes several highly-sought-after awards both to those member funds and individual fund managers who have been standard-bearers for the industry over the course of the previous year. The Investors’ Award for Outstanding Achievement this year seeks to recognise those funds that have made the greatest contribution towards addressing both physical and transactional climate risk through the decarbonisation of their operations, but also in comprehensively communicating their progress and achievements to investors at both at fund and asset level.
AIPUT (managed by abrdn) Fund Manager, Nick Smith, said: “It’s fantastic to see the AREF Annual Dinner & Awards back in 2022 after the last two pandemic-affected years’ absence. We are delighted and honoured to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award, which recognises the hard work that the AIPUT team has made in both driving forward and communicating its Net Zero Carbon Strategy.
“A strong Net Zero Carbon culture is firmly embedded in all our decision-making, throughout the acquisition, management and development of our real estate assets, and we have been working hard to fully bring everyone we work with on board with our programme to decarbonise our portfolio at pace as we approach our 2040 Net Zero Carbon target - not only investors, but also our suppliers, customers and business partners."
“To be shortlisted by AREF as one of the outstanding performers of this past year recognises our achievement in pushing hard towards achieving NZC across our whole portfolio by 2040, which has unquestionably been a significant driver of the fund’s exceptional value growth throughout 2021 and 2022. As we keenly await the announcement of the winners at the awards dinner this month, we wish all our fellow finalists the best of luck on the day!”
The AREF Annual Dinner and Awards will be held on Tuesday 27th September at The Savoy, London. Read more about the awards and finalists here: https://bit.ly/3qfXBUE
