LARGE BUSINESS SUSTAINABILITY LEADERSHIP
The GPT Group, NSW
The GPT Group’s sustainability strategy builds on the cultural legacy of its founder, Dick Dusseldorp. The distinctive organisational culture that Dusseldorp built was founded on the belief that a community of interest exists between investors, employees and the wider community and we strive to ensure that this principle continues to be embedded in all that we do at GPT.
GPT’s vision is to maximise the financial potential of Australian property with solutions that fulfil the aspirations of its investors, tenants and communities. In enabling this vision, GPT aims to make a net positive contribution to its communities, people and the environment.
With sustainability integrated into GPT’s strategy, we recognise the importance of underpinning our business objectives with an aligned organisational culture, effective stakeholder engagement, and good governance and business processes that embed sustainability practices into our day-to-day operations.
GPT is proud to benchmark sustainability performance by participating in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). GPT has been named the global sector leader in real estate, on the DJSI for 2014/15. This is the fourth time in six years that GPT has been recognised in this way.
