Our purpose is to build great places for our customers, communities, and the environment. We invest in placemaking, delivering attractive homes, amenities and open green space to improve the quality of life for customers and communities.
We recognise the responsibilities we have as a Group to maintain the natural, human and social capital we engage with. Sustainability is an integral part of our business strategy and culture and we aim to integrate responsible practices throughout all aspects of our business, allowing us to contribute positively to society and create long-term value for our stakeholders.
Our sustainability strategy is split into three priority areas: protect the environment, make a positive impact on communities and operate our business responsibly. We are committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and waste in our business activities and have developed new science-based targets, which include a commitment to reach net-zero across our value chain by 2045. We aim to reduce the impact our homes and developments have on the environment and create developments that are future proofed for a changing climate. We are also committed to delivering positive social value for our employees, customers, communities, partners and people throughout our supply chain. By creating great homes and developments, respecting human rights and providing a safe, diverse and inclusive workplace we can build a better future for all our stakeholders.
Our commitment to sustainability starts at the top with Board oversight and ownership of the sustainability strategy and objectives. Our Sustainability Committee has delegated authority from the Board and Executive Committee to integrate sustainable practices into the business. We also have a suite of policies in place and further detail on our sustainability governance is available here.
