Sustainability

We take a different approach to sustainability to create a lasting legacy for our partners, communities and people.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do.

Given our role in creating large-scale new communities with significant infrastructure, sustainability has always been fundamental to the quality of what we deliver and the way we work with our partners, the communities around us and our people.

We are proud of the places we have created and the impacts we have achieved to date. Our approach to sustainability evolves every year, through continual engagement with our stakeholders and a more sophisticated understanding of our core business risks and opportunities. 

Through this process we have distilled a number of sustainability capitals and objectives that are at the heart of who we are and what we do. Our five capitals, physical, social, economic, natural and human, reflect the importance we place on building quality communities that bring people together, whilst protecting the environment now and for future generations.

Explore each of our capitals in more detail by clicking through the diagram on the left.
