Stride's sustainability strategy is focussed on creating enduring shared value. Stride has established a Board Sustainability Committee to assist the Boards in ensuring Stride’s business remains sustainable and resilient.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Stride has set targets to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions by 42% by 2030. The charts below detail scope 1 and 2 emissions by entity managed by Stride, and also the aggregate scope 1 and 2 emissions. Emissions increased in FY22 due to an increase in the number of properties owned. Stride also tracks scope 3 emissions, which for Stride are primarily tenant emissions.

Stride aims to support communities in which we operate through partnering with community groups, programmes, and services which help connect people and provide opportunities for those who are more vulnerable, currently excluded from society or disadvantaged. Stride has implemented a Community Engagement Framework which governs Stride’s community investment activities.
Consistent with Stride’s community investment strategy of providing opportunities for youth to access experiences that would not otherwise have been available to them and encourage continuing education, Stride supports the work of the Graeme Dingle Foundation through sponsorship and other community involvement. Stride is a key partner of the Graeme Dingle Foundation.
The Foundation works with New Zealand's tamariki and rangatahi at different life stages, working directly with schools and communities through its programmes, seeking to inspire all school age New Zealand children to reach their full potential through progammes that help build self-esteem, promote good values and develop valuable life, education and health skills.
