Attacq’s FTSE Russell ESG Rating

FTSE Russell is a leading global provider of benchmarks, analytics and data solutions with multi-asset capabilities. FTSE Russell’s ESG rating is used by investors to understand a company’s exposure to, and management of, ESG issues, and are also integrated into index construction. FTSE Russell’s ESG rating is based on three underlying pillars and 14 themes. Underpinning this there are over 300 individual indicator assessments, a selection of which are applied to each company, depending on its unique circumstances.

Our FTSE Russell ESG rating was assessed as 3.1 (FY22: 3.2) out of 5.0 by FTSE Russell. We are pleased that our reporting has outperformed the global sub-sector and industry averages.

Approach to Environmental

The plan further supports our business strategy through balancing the management and development of future-proofed real estate within the parameters of our operating context and compliance imperatives.

We are currently implementing enhanced measuring and reporting processes to proactively monitor the performance of ourbuildings. Our goal is to regularly compare our daily results, leveraging our eco-analytics dashboard, with industry benchmarks to improve our performance. A utility expert has been appointed to further interpret data, identify variances and anomalies to build efficiencies and allow management to make informed decisions to enhance energy management and refine sustainability reporting. This resource will apply best practice in relation to the management of utilities on all levels and help mitigate financial risks.
