Certification story

Fiera Real Estate UK, a leading investment management company with offices in North America and Europe and a team of over 130 employees, has achieved Planet Mark certification. 

This is Fiera Real Estate UK’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

Fiera Real Estate UK’s total carbon footprint in the year ending 31 December 2021 was 134.1 tCO2e. Fiera Real Estate UK’s total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 1.7 tCO2e.  

Achieving Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders. 

Since certifying, the company will be working to reduce its emissions by 5%. Over the next year, Fiera Real Estate will be working towards measuring and reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Fiera Real Estate has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Planet Mark
“I am delighted to welcome Fiera Real Estate UK to Planet Mark certification. The property industry is ripe for change, and Fiera recognises that. Committing to reducing its carbon footprint is an important step in the company’s sustainability journey, and Fiera has an inclusive policy that will not only help cut carbon, but will also become a business asset. I look forward to this growing partnership with Fiera and seeing their progress on sustainability.”
Emma Cullen
Chief Operating Officer
Fiera Real Estate UK
“At Fiera Real Estate UK, we recognise the role we, and our managed funds play, in supporting the Government’s net zero carbon target of 2050. In 2020, we partnered with Planet Mark to better understand the business’s carbon footprint and were awarded the Planet Mark Year 2020 Business Certification, which represents a key milestone in our commitment to environmental excellence and supports our transition to net zero carbon. We believe that real change comes from working together, so we look forward to continuing our journey with Planet Mark to reduce our impact and to use our success in this space to encourage others to do the same. “

Certification story

Fiera Real Estate recognises the importance of integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues within its investment management processes. The team believes that they have a responsibility to their investors to fully understand the impact of these issues and to embed ESG considerations into the way we manage our funds so that we may drive long-term value and mitigate risk. Fiera aspires to be among the global leaders in ESG integration, implementing a wide reaching ESG strategy that is responsible, resilient, and engaged.

Real estate accounts for 40% of the world’s energy consumption. If the world is to reach its climate targets, the whole supply chain involved in real estate must come together to reduce emissions. Fortunately, low-carbon solutions often provide a number of business benefits. Sustainable buildings are also often healthy buildings, boosting the health, wellness and productivity of their occupiers.  

Future targets

Reduce carbon footprint by 5% annually

As part of the Planet Mark certification, Fiera Real Estate has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
