Responsible Business Practices

Our Real Estate Portfolio Comprises an Impressive Collection of High Sustainability Ratings

Sidra manages investments in a wide variety of economic sectors and industries, but one of our main focuses is the global real estate market.

Our goal, of course, continues to be to generate revenue for our clients, but we are dedicated to achieving this goal in accordance with the principles of ESG. And our activities in real estate investment worldwide are a clear reflection of this.

Our remarkable portfolio of properties in the UK comprises an impressive collection of high EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) ratings, that stems from our successful efforts to compile a green portfolio in alignment with the concerns of today’s investors. In addition to our properties with high EPC ratings, we have investments in numerous BREEAM-approved buildings that garnered high ratings of sustainability, a marked capacity to adapt to and mitigate climate change and to reduce carbon output.

In the US, we are proud to have acquired the Arborcrest Corporate Campus, which is a LEED gold certificate holder with a significant life sciences and biotech tenancy.

On the private finance side, Sidra’s Ancile Fund and Mutajara Fund, which represent almost 10% of Sidra’s AUM, are invested in financing commodity trade in emerging markets. The funds provide secure and efficient financing for companies mostly in the agriculture/food sector, via investment vehicles applying responsible investing and impact framework.

Investing in Values

Generating Positive Impact

The company works to minimize the impact its investment activities have on the environment and wider society, focusing on both now and the quality of life for future generations. In Asia and Africa have tried to significantly decrease the company’s investment impact on the environment while contributing to the development of local communities, cities, and regions.

In Asia we have worked with local communities by planting trees on land previously used for mining, restoring the land to its original condition, aiding the restoration of the ecosystem. On a wider scale, we aim to use these efforts to create jobs for tree planters and equipment operators.

In Africa, we have used our resources to improve housing conditions and provide access to shelter by building 350 homes for impoverished people.

Celebrating the spirit of Ramadan with orphans

In the spirit of Ramadan and as part of Sidra’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) drive, the company organized a community engagement initiative to make the month of Ramadan a special time for the Kingdom’s orphans. Sidra employees donated clothes and toys to the most deprived segment of our population, giving them the opportunity to celebrate Eid and experience the true spirit of the holy month.

Fourteen boxes of assorted donations were collected and delivered to Al Bir Society, a reputable Jeddah-based charitable organization that distributed the donations to the neediest and most underprivileged segment of the Kingdom’s population.

Sidra, both as a corporate entity and a member of society, recognizes and embraces the common humanity that exists in all of us. This initiative not only reflected our ethics and values but infused the hearts of orphans with hope. It was, indeed, the embodiment of the goodness of Ramadan.

We extend a very special thanks to our team who volunteered their time and energy to make this important initiative a success.
