Safe Sustainable Storage

Our sustainability strategy

Our material sustainability issues, as identified by internal and external stakeholder engagement (with colleagues, investors, customers, and partners), fall within four areas, which we call the ‘pillars’ of our sustainability strategy: our people, our customers, our community, and our environment. Although these ‘pillars’ do not fundamentally change, we periodically review our activities to ensure we are focusing clearly on material areas and are aligned with not only our corporate goals but also the principles of the UN Global Compact. We track progress against medium term targets set in 2019 using appropriate key performance indicators (“KPIs”).

We report in accordance with the European Public Real Estate Association’s (“EPRA’s”) latest recommendations: EPRA Sustainability Best Practices Recommendations (“sBPR”), third version September 2017. These recommendations are also aligned with the latest Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) standards.Once finalised, these indicators and supplemental information can be downloaded from Report and Presentations section on our website.
In recognition of the strides made in our sustainability disclosures, Safestore has been given a Silver rating in the 2022 EPRA Sustainability BPR awards. In addition, the Global ESG Benchmark for Real Assets (“GRESB”) has once again awarded Safestore an ‘A’ rating in its 2022 Public Disclosures assessment and MSCI has awarded Safestore its second-highest
rating of ‘AA’ for ESG..
