GPT is committed to achieving carbon neutral operations for all its managed assets by 2024 and upfront embodied carbon neutral property developments where GPT has control, from 2023 onwards. The Group’s commitment includes GPT balance sheet, GPT Wholesale Office Fund and GPT Wholesale Shopping Centre Fund assets.
GPT will release a Climate Disclosure Statement in alignment with TCFD as well as measure and publicly report its energy consumption, operational emissions, upfront embodied carbon emissions for developments and offsets used to compensate for residual emissions.
GPT’s Energy Master Plan and Embodied Carbon Strategy are both premised on first reducing and eliminating emissions through efficiencies, replacement with lower emitting processes and products and use of renewable energy sources. These strategies are being implemented across the portfolio.
GPT will seek independent certification for the delivery of carbon neutral buildings and upfront embodied carbon neutral developments. GPT works with the Green Building Council of Australia, NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) and Climate Active to certify their outcomes and engages third party auditors to assure relevant data disclosures.
As a leader in delivering operational carbon neutral certified buildings and upfront embodied carbon neutral developments, GPT will partner with certifying bodies to develop industry pathways, share learnings to support others in their climate response, drive supply chains to improve their emissions profiles and support tenants in their net zero aspirations. Most importantly, GPT is leading by example and so its influence has greater impact due to demonstrating early and real action.
