22 October 2021: Get Living, the UK’s leading build-to-rent operator of large-scale residential neighbourhoods, has achieved a 5 star GRESB rating and led its peer group, for its standing investment portfolio, comprising its neighbourhoods at East Village, Elephant Central and Middlewood Locks, for the year to December 2020.
Key activities which form part of Get Living’s ESG strategy include:
This was the first year GRESB has required a separate submission for all developments owned by Get Living Plc. The active development portfolio, which currently comprises the 649 bed Lewisham Gateway and Elephant & Castle Town Centre, was assessed for the first time, achieving a score of 90/100, resulting in a high 4 star rating.
However, with improvements being seen across the peer group, the benchmark for top performance is becoming ever more competitive meaning that Get Living will have to set itself ever more challenging targets in future years.
Ailish Christian-West, Head of Real Estate at Get Living said: “We are very proud of these achievements but recognise this is just a marker in the ground and we must continue to strive to improve our practices to reduce carbon emissions and cut waste whilst ensuring the wellbeing of our residents, staff and wider society remain at the forefront of everything we do.”
