“Sustainability is about the actions we take to fulfil our purpose so Landsec prospers far into the future. We want customers to prefer our spaces. We want communities to be pleased it’s us operating in their area. We want partners to share our priorities. And we want employees to invest their energy and ambition here. When we get all this right, we create value for our investors.” Robert Noel, Chief Executive, Landsec

Landsec’s sustainability programme focuses on three key areas:

  • Creating jobs and opportunities
  • Efficient use of natural resources
  • Sustainable design and innovation
