A clear commitment

to sustainable business practices

Sustainable investment

IPUT has a clear commitment to sustainable business practices, which form a cornerstone of our investment strategy. In 2019, we became the first Irish property company to become a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.

Responsible investment strategy

Climate action

Net zero operational emissions from our directly managed portfolio by 2025. Our 2020 target is to ensure that all electricity procured by our directly managed sites is 100% renewable.

Responsible investment strategy

Circular economy

Design buildings and processes to optimise materials to remove waste. Our initial target, for 2021, is to increase recycling rates to 75% across all directly managed sites.

Responsible investment strategy

Health & wellbeing

Tools and initiatives to enhance the user experience of an IPUT Building. Our 2020 target is to roll out placemaking initiatives at Wilton Park and across our wider portfolio.


Responsibility Report

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