Sustainable spaces and biodiversity
Guaranteeing a safe and productive work environment is central to what we do. By developing indicators of environmental impact on our tenants we can guarantee healthy and safe spaces, extend our attitude of responsible resource management to our tenants, and identify properties eligible for environmental certifi- cation in the future.
Biodiversity plays a key role in the functioning of ecosystems and the many services they provide—clean water, food, wood, fertile soil and climate regulation. Our ability to create value over the long term depends largely on the resilience of ecosystems, and the loss of biodiversity makes the ecosystems on which we de- pend less functional.
Many of our properties are located in densely populated urban areas which are generally far removed from their previous biodiversity. But there is an opportunity to have a positive impact through our existing devel- opments and properties when zoning regulations change.
Results: Sustainable Spaces
The following table shows—in floor space and percentage—the tenants who participate in our resource stewardship initiatives, like energy and water efficiency:
Mexico is considered a mega-diverse country; its territory is home to a great many of the existing species on the planet. As a FIBRA, we are committed to ensuring that our properties do not damage the flora and fauna that inhabit the various regions where we oper- ate. To this end, we have identified properties that are located close to natural preserves or Natural Protected Areas to determine our impact, if any, and develop conservation initiatives together with our stakeholders.
Properties Located Close to Natural Protected Areas
We have three properties in states that are pursuing strategies for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. None of these properties interfere or conflict with state planning or pose a threat to the species or biodiversity of the zones where they are located.
