Materiality

Materiality & Stakeholders

We listen.
We regularly consult with a wide range of stakeholders and listen to what is important to them.

Sustainability is led from the top with a well established governance framework which allows informed discussions of economic, social and environmental goals, risks and opportunities by senior management. It also enhances our reputation, drives innovation and contributes to risk management.

Creating successful sustainable communities is not about bricks and mortar but people. At centre stage are not only our customers, but also local authorities responsible for delivering new housing and local people, including those for whom new development may not always be welcome.

We bring the mindset and skills to facilitate honest engagement, which requires a commitment to build relationships: to listen and respond genuinely and to help create and implement a shared vision in tune with local need and expectations - always accepting that not everyone can be satisfied.
