"Enlightened Self Interest"

From the very beginning, part of the fundamental ethos at Attic Self Storage has been to have a diversified approach to business. Our founder has always believed in balancing the needs of the business with that of our customers and the local environment in which we operate. This is still true of the company today, and enshrined in the principle of “Enlightened Self Interest” which guides our business and investment philosophy.

In order to instil this principle across the wider business we have developed, and continue to evolve, our own Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) policy. The aim is to help us keep a perspective on things that are important to the wider context in which we operate such as sustainability, our environmental impact and the communities and people in the locations where we operate. Having an ESG policy enables us to demonstrate that we are a responsible company, measure our improvements, hold ourselves accountable for our actions and strive towards continuous improvement. We plan to publish our targets and achievements in due course but in the meantime, we wanted to share a few details of the areas that we will focus on in the short term.

Below you can read more about the sorts of things that we are already doing to bring our policies to life.
