We are delighted to confirm that the winner of this year’s Cordatus ESG Award is Andrew Murray.
The award encourages the Cordatus team to continually think about these important issues as part of the day to day portfolio management of their assets. This year there were a record number of submissions, all of which were of high quality.
After careful deliberation, the judging panel felt that Andrew’s submission however demonstrated a clear understanding of not just the importance of the ‘E’ of ESG in the real estate sector but also the ‘S’ and a range of successful initiatives were recorded across a wide range of property types and locations.
“I am delighted to be awarded this accolade for the second year running and I would like to think of this is a team effort alongside our property managers and consultants, as we continually strive to improve the ESG credentials of our assets under management. Whilst last year had the additional complications from COVID-19, we were still able to implement a wide range of ESG improvements across our assets both from refurbishments as well as through a number of community creativities, such as offering NHS key workers discounts and priority queuing at our neighbourhood centres. We also have some very interesting ideas for the year ahead, including the potential introduction of bee hives and bug hotels at some of our industrial estates.”
An Amazon e-voucher of £100 was awarded to the winner.
