Sustainability means different things to different people.

As a business focused on mutual success, innovative spaces and a better future, our long-term success is linked to our ‘For the Future’ framework and approach.

From considering our environmental impact and being more efficient with natural resources, to creating positive spaces that enable people and communities to be resilient and thrive, we make the most of opportunities to be more sustainable in everything we do.

Strategy for the future

A sustainable approach to tomorrow

We’ve created a framework to help define and set specific sustainability objectives for our business. Drawing on our guiding principles, and aligned with our corporate strategy, it enables us to be more accountable and work towards delivering long-term outcomes that are positive for all.

This means helping build strong communities and local economies, strengthening our position as a key local community player, addressing issues important to our business and our stakeholders and ensuring we are focused on creating healthy and productive work spaces for our people and extending this to our customers.



For the Future Framework

Material issues

To keep us on the path to a more sustainable future, we regularly commission research and invite customers and stakeholders to share their experiences.

Together with understanding gained from emerging global issues, trends and best practice, these valuable insights help us set a number of Material Issues – core principles that our For the Future framework has been designed to address.
