ESG Reporting

We are committed to creating and operating a responsible and sustainable business which has a positive impact on all of our stakeholders. We also recognise the need to be transparent about our approach, strategy, priorities, progress and both short-term and long-term key aims.

In 2022, we published our Net Zero report, which fully details our decarbonisation pathway that we are putting into practice. We intend to become net zero in our operations, property portfolio and energy consumption by 2033. We have also set a wider target of being net zero in all our emissions (adding scope 3) by 2050 or before.
