Download our Carbon Manifesto

Our Carbon Manifesto shows how we can lead the way to a lower carbon economy, with reductions across our portfolio and new development pipeline. Through it, we aim to redefine what it is to be a modern landlord. 
We will build new stakeholder relationships and reiterate our commitment as a partner for government. We recognise that we don't have all the answers, but we're ready and willing to work with others to address the emissions challenge. 


The Manifesto also outlines the progress we've made so far in this area.
