A clear commitment

to responsible business practices

Our responsible
investment strategy

Our strategy guides our approach to the environmental, social and governance issues most relevant to our business, and where our management approach can have greatest influence.

Responsible investment strategy

Climate action

In 2020, we achieved our target to procure 100% renewable energy for sites under our direct control. We also outlined our net zero buildings commitment: by 2030, all assets in our direct control will operate at net zero carbon and we will only develop assets that operate at net zero carbon.

Responsible investment strategy

Circular economy

How we treat materials is evolving as we learn how to design materials into buildings in a way to allow efficient repair, reuse, or recycling. Our core objective is to make this as efficient as possible so that waste from our assets is kept to a minimum.

Responsible investment strategy

Health & wellbeing

We collaborate closely with our occupiers to understand their requirements, and this helps us to develop tools and initiatives that enhance the user experience of an IPUT Building.


Responsibility Report

Responsible investment has always been inherent in IPUT’s approach to good estate management and how we operate our buildings.


Sustainability in our developments

Our vision is to set the benchmark for excellence in Irish real estate and positively shape the future of our city.

We are leaders in Irish real estate and our developments are designed to the highest standards and achieve market-leading sustainability certifications. We recognise our responsibility to continue to advance that position through our culture of excellence and innovation.
