Sentinel believes that environmental, social responsibility and corporate governance (ESG)
factors can have an impact on investment performance and must be considered when evaluating
real estate investment opportunities and managing real estate assets. Sentinel’s ESG policy is
designed to (i) ensure ESG considerations are incorporated into our decision-making processes,
(ii) provide our employees with guidelines for implementing ESG initiatives at our investment
properties and (iii) define Sentinel’s position on ESG for the benefit of clients, stakeholders and
third parties we work with. This policy applies to all Sentinel entities, employees and affiliates.
Our ESG objectives are integrated into all aspects of our real estate operations and the
investment cycle as a whole; and these factors are considered throughout our due-diligence,
acquisition, construction and development, operations, management and disposition processes.
Our Property Management and Asset Management teams regularly evaluate and report property
level ESG performance to the Capital Programs and Sustainability Group to inform our ESG
strategy and direction. The Portfolio Management teams, and ultimately the Executive
Committee, ensure that this strategy aligns with our clients’ real estate investment objectives.
