At Bayleys, we recognise the crucial role that businesses can play in creating a more sustainable future by reducing the overall impact on the environment and supporting people.
Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy outlines how we can cultivate a more proactive approach to the important social and environmental issues facing our business, the wider real estate industry, and the world today.
It reflects our commitment to operating with integrity and transparency, and our belief that a responsible and sustainable business model is essential for both long-term corporate success and leaving a lighter global footprint.
Through our ESG initiatives, we aim to create value for all our stakeholders - our employees, clients, shareholders, business partners, and the communities we operate in.
We believe that by embedding sustainability into our business model and operational decision-making, and by working together, we can create a better, more sustainable Aotearoa for future generations.
We acknowledge that operating in a more sustainable way is challenging and will always be a work in progress. The framework we have developed focusses on a set of key environmental, social and governance-related objectives that mesh with Bayleys’ corporate values and align with best-practice global pillars including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals we feel most relevant.
Creating greater climate resilience by reducing carbon and greenhouse gas emissions across our occupied and managed portfolio.
Supporting the safety and preservation of our most valued asset - he tangata, he tangata, he tangata (our people, our people, our people).
Managing, acting and procuring responsibly across all aspects of our business operations and partnership value chains.
Building awareness of the sustainability related challenges that create operation disruption and reputational risk to our business.
Achieving productive future employment and opportunities through our sustainable development strategies.
Promoting an equal and ethical working environment inclusiveness that protects our people, our customers and communities.
Bayleys hosted an RICS NZ CPD event featuring Bayleys ESG champion, Stuart Bent on the discussion panel.
Our very own Michael Gillon and Stuart Bent presented as guest lecturers at the The University of Auckland speaking about all things ESG including initiatives happening at our Harbour Grounds office precinct. A great opportunity to inspire the next generation of sustainable thinkers.
Bayleys Property Services proudly manage the Harbour Grounds office precinct, including our head office within Bayleys House. As part of our asset management we have had the exciting opportunity to help the owners develop and implement several environmental and social sustainability initiatives and activations.
