Property legend Warren Ebert in line for UN gong
July 25, 2023
Sentinel has been nominated for inclusion on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Actions Platforms, a global registry of initiatives supporting the UN’s commitment to end poverty and tackle climate change.
Ebert and chief experience officer Michael Sherlock, have been familiar with the SDG agenda since visiting the UN in New York, and have been working to improve the syndicator’s sustainability performance.
“With the accelerating impacts of climate change, Sentinel is passionate about our environmental, social and governance (ESG) responsibilities,” Ebert says.
The Brisbane-based fund manager has been busy installing solar power at many of its properties, including a $4.7m rooftop system at Caneland Central shopping centre in Mackay, which has also achieved its first-ever 5-star NABERS water rating.
A NABERS rating looks at the amount of water used and recycled within a building.
Of course, Ebert is unlikely to be eating mung bean burgers anytime soon at the local Greens branch meeting.
In 2019, he said he was sick of anti- Adani coal protestors gathering outside Adani’s Townsville’s headquarters, which Sentinel owned.
“They (anti-Adani activists) go in and terrorise people, yelling and screaming. People get upset,’’ he said. “I tell them to piss off and leave our property. They are feral looking bastards who have no respect for the business of the economy. They are trespassing and should be charged.”
