Reini Otter, Chief Executive Officer for Frasers Property Industrial comments, “We’re pleased to achieve strong, portfolio-wide results in this year’s GRESB ratings, and we’re particularly proud of the significant increase in score and rating for our European development and standing investments portfolio. The substantial improvement in rating reflects the dedication of the Frasers Property Industrial team to invest in upgrading existing assets and by partnering with our customers we’ve implemented new technologies that help with our data collection to reduce environmental impact. Our project, The Tube in Dusseldorf, Germany, which is targeting the first-ever Gold demolition certification from the DGNB German Sustainable Building Council, is a leading example of our strategy in action. Through a climate-friendly and transparent demolition process, we’ve recycled approximately 70,000 tonnes of building materials on-site, saving up to 7,000 truck movements in this time. 


“Our high quality and future-proof portfolio in Australia reflects in our sector leading status, and 5 Star GRESB rating for the seventh consecutive year. We strive to continuously raise the bar on sustainable and innovative industrial development, which is demonstrated through achievements like The YARDS in Sydney receiving Australia’s first ever 6-star green star Communities rating for industrial property, from the Green Building Council of Australia earlier this year.  

“Guided by our sustainability strategy, every decision we make has the reduction of net zero emissions in mind – it inspires us to design better and innovate more. We’re proud to be partnering with organisations across Australia and Europe to collaboratively move the sector forward to a more sustainable future for the planet, people and businesses.”
