“If every individual does one thing for a cleaner world, future generations will benefit,” Founder of Delorenzo Property Group, John Delorenzo, leading by example by disposing of petrol-run company vehicles and replacing them with electric.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are attracting more and more focus in today’s landscape, and are vitally important for businesses in delivering their work, doing transactions, due diligence and more generally in shaping their strategic outlook for success.
Investors are also starting to take note of ESG, increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities.
Most notably this shift toward placing more importance on ESG has increased in light of a post-pandemic world. As more demand is placed on ESG investing, several key trends are emerging – from climate change to social unrest. The coronavirus pandemic, in particular, has intensified discussions about the interconnectedness of sustainability and the financial system.
Delorenzo Property Group is a newly formed property valuation and advisory firm, established in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic. Founder, John Delorenzo, recognised that that would be a need to develop and include sustainability assessments. “We are now noticing a stronger focus around ESG, as compliance around sustainable built environments tightens, and an issue of green bonds for clean energy finance, sustainable recognising in our built environment is becoming the norm,” John says.
Historically, most property valuation or advisory reports will exclude the intangibles and have limited risk associated with a sustainable built environment. Delorenzo Property Group is pioneering the way forward by ensuring as part of their risk assessment technique in valuation reports, sustainability evaluations are made, including the impact of governance and social issues.
Delorenzo Property Group, identify the following three measurements of sustainability, ensuring they are clearly identified within any valuation or advisory reports prepared. NatHERS rating, is a national scales rating of 1 to 10 for energy efficiency; NABERS rating, the nationally recognised system to measure the environmental efficiency of buildings inclusive of water usage, waste management and indoor environment quality of a building; and, Green Star rating, an internally recognised Australian sustainability rating certification system.
Experts at providing property valuations and advisory services, the Delorenzo Property Group reduces the time, effort, and cost of the valuation process for their clients, whilst ensuring peace of mind that they have all the information they need to decide whether to purchase or sell property.
