Colliers, an investment management company, has highlighted its commitment to integrate environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) best practices across the organisation by partnering IGBC’s Mission on Net Zero. Colliers’ Real Estate Management Services (REMS) team pledged its support to the mission to achieve Net-Zero by 2050.
“At Colliers, we always do what’s right for our people, clients, and communities. Reiterating Colliers’ global commitment to ESG, we pledge to achieve a Net-Zero status by 2050. We are proud to have joined some of the leading organizations in driving this mission by the CII-IGBC,” said Sankey Prasad, FRICS, Chairman & Managing Director (India), Colliers.
Striving for service excellence to drive exceptional results, Colliers’ REMS team provides lasting value for clients through a full suite of sustainability services that improve the performance of their properties and result in better environmental and economic outcomes.
“Our planet has already shown signs of deterioration, and hence sustainability is no longer about conserving the built environment. Instead, it is all about doing better, compensating for our past unsustainable actions. At Colliers India, we are collaborating with IGBC in its Mission on Net-Zero by 2050, pledging to develop a clear, measurable road map, setting out the first intermediatory targets by 2025, and after that improvising on the plan once every five years,” said Rajesh Shetty, Managing Director, Real Estate Management Services (India), Colliers.
