Transforming space to create sustainable place to live work and grow

Central to delivering our Transforming Spaces vision is our ESG strategy, which guides our actions in the short, medium and long term.

The strategy focuses on five areas of ESG:

Energy & carbon

To reduce our contribution to global warming in all facets of the business and meet legal requirements.

Employee wellbeing

To ensure our staff are happy, supported and well looked after, providing a positive, inclusive and safe environment to work.

Waste management

To reduce the quantities of waste generated and to apply more circular approaches to the management of waste, predominately generated from our buildings operations.

Sustainable supply chains

To ensure that our supply chain and the materials we source have a positive contribution to the environment and society.

Community impact

To have a positive impact in the communities we operate in by engaging with local groups and charities and supporting them in their missions.
