“Fine Grain Property has set emissions reduction targets through the Science Based Targets initiative, with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. The targets covering greenhouse gas emissions from Fine Grain’s operations (scopes 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5°C, what climate science has told us is needed to prevent the most damaging effects of climate change.”

Sean McGuire, Sustainability Lead at Fine Grain Property

Fine Grain Futures

Fine Grain Futures focuses on sustainability in the environmental sense, setting the community on a pathway towards net-zero with ambitious climate action targets. Grounded in climate science, Fine Grain Property is committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to make meaningful changes and positive impacts in a very visible way. Supported by Schneider Electric Energy and Sustainability Services, Fine Grain Property has completed a comprehensive study of all assets under operational control and compiled a detailed Green House Gas (GHG) Inventory Management Plan (IMP). Fine Grain is investing in the future, developing environmental and social sustainability initiatives in partnership with clients and investors that aims to build community through positivity and a shared ethos, to reduce our negative impact on the environment.

A baseline carbon footprint has been calculated for all Fine Grain Properties in accordance with industry best practice and the principles outlined in World Research Institute (WRI) / World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), Greenhouse Gas Protocol: Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. Fine Grain maintains the GHG Inventory to measure and report on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, tracking progress towards reducing absolute scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 51% no later than 2030 and further to measure and reduce scope 3 emissions. Thus ensuring our own business, owned properties and Workplace Communities are resilient to climate change.
