The importance of ESG to Aliro

As a leading developer in the Industrial and Logistics sector, we are committed to creating future-proofed assets that help our customers benefit from new and emerging technologies.

James Cahill, Aliro Group’s ESG Manager, shares his insights on the importance of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) to Aliro.

Having joined Aliro in 2022, James is responsible for ESG strategy development and implementation, bringing 9 years’ experience across sustainability consulting, construction, solar PV delivery, and ESG reporting.

According to James, Aliro’s point of difference when it comes to ESG is empowering all teams to understand our ESG Strategy and take ownership for its delivery.

In terms of what emerging ESG trends is Aliro currently focused on, James added:

“As a leading developer in the Industrial and Logistics sector, we are committed to creating future-proofed assets that help our customers benefit from new and emerging technologies. For example, the rapid uptake of electric vehicles is presenting an opportunity for our tenants to accelerate their emissions reductions goals.

The success of our solution depends on provisioning all new developments for charging units and utilising the combined benefits of embedded networks, on-site solar PV, and management software to optimise load management and reduce emissions.”

What is your approach to ESG at Aliro?
Our company’s vision is to enrich people’s lives through positive property outcomes. ESG is a cornerstone of this vision. It helps us deliver enduring social, environmental, and economic value for our people and partners through our roles as a landlord, developer, fund manager and employer.

In 2022, we released a new ESG Strategy shaped by major sustainability trends and the needs and concerns of our people, partners, customers, and the community. Our approach to deliver this strategy is practical and outcomes oriented. That is our point of difference – empowering all Aliro teams through tailored training and our ESG Framework, which provides tools, templates, and guidelines that help our people convert goals and targets into meaningful action.

How are you contributing to the Australian property industry’s race to net zero?
We have set a target to achieve Net Zero Emissions (Scope 1 and 2) for all Aliro-owned assets by the end of 2025, which reflects our commitment to accelerated action on emissions reduction. Part of this focus involves taking meaningful action on Scope 3 emissions. For upstream sources (e.g. embodied carbon), that entails embracing innovation and new technologies across our active development pipeline. For downstream sources (e.g. tenant electricity use), we are seeking opportunities to support our customers transition to all-electric buildings powered by renewables.
