Multinational retail developer Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) needed comprehensive professional services to lead and enhance its strategic ESG initiatives, including environmental data management and sustainability reporting. ADEC Innovations’ ESG multidisciplinary team stepped in to streamline data management and bring expertise to various reporting indices.
Integrating sustainability and data management with MetricsTrac™, an ADEC Innovation, our team combined more than 20 data streams with 90 unique data points from 50 locations within the former Westfield US and UK footprint, freeing up internal URW resources. We worked hand-in-hand with URW staff to develop structured responses to CDP, GRESB, and FTSE4Good, resulting in increased scores across the board. This solid foundation of accurate and auditable data provided the basis for URW’s CSR report, including GHG emissions and mitigation project components. We provided responsive support throughout, from data to sustainability disclosure management, and served as an extension of the URW team in developing portions of their CSR report. These efforts culminated in an assessment by the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ASCI) in 2016, designating the company at the "Leading" level for ESG reporters.
Following the June 2018 acquisition of Westfield, URW now owns and operates 102 shopping centers across 13 countries. With the establishment of long-term data integration and management solutions to track and analyze their global data sets, MetricsTrac provides a solid foundation for their future reporting, target-setting, and growth, and their continued sustainability efforts.
